Water Quality

The following data are summarized as seasonal average values for lake and river sampling locations located within the watershed. While these data are useful to serve as a general picture of watershed health, these data must be viewed with caution because these samples have been taken from ecologically different water resources.

Rivers:
Samples from most rivers located in this watershed are averaged as part of these data summaries.
