Water Quality 2015: Los Peñasquitos Watershed

Water Quality 2015 - Penasquitos (2)

Water Quality Index Score: 74, Fair

Los Penasquitos Polar 2015Well, here it is: the most typical, average watershed in San Diego County in terms of water quality pollution and health. Our data in this watershed did not change dramatically from the year previous, nor did it produce any intriguing results this year.

It’s typical.

The end point for this watershed, the Los Penasquitos Lagoon, has an official “pollution diet” in place for sediment, which means it’s a known problem here. We continue to monitor this closely.
