Written by Meredith Meyers

Water Quality 2015 - Sweetwater (1)

Water Quality Index Score: 53, Marginal

Sweetwater Polar 2015Our data in Sweetwater Watershed showed:

This is another watershed indicative of extremely low water flows creating high nutrient levels and low oxygen levels — so low that the river is nearly depleted of oxygen for many of the summer months.

Why should we care? Our volunteers also spot turtles in this watershed, which depend on the river for their livelihood.
