Preliminary 2013 RBV Results

By  | 

The results from the macroinvertebrate sampling done in October 2013. Of the nine sites that we sampled, only one had the minimum of four “most wanted” species that the state uses as a benchmark for water quality. This is not an absolute determination of water quality, but it is an indicator.

You can find the full results for 2012 on the DEEP website. We’ll post the 2013 results when they become available.

    Thanks to all the volunteers who sampled last September. Your efforts provide a good snapshot of how our streams and rivers are doing. Hope to see you all at the CVTU banquet on 3/21!
