SWCC Report card, June, 2022

The SWCC has developed a volunteer sample program to monitor the water quality of our streams at 4 strategic locations, Bens Run, Brice Run, Dogwood Run and Granite Run.  These streams capture runoff from a large portion of the land area within the GPCA and represent a range of land-use, development, and watershed size characteristics. The report here summarizes  two years of water quality data.
