Watershed Field Survey
In an effort to better understand potential water quality impacts in our watershed, local Creek Crew volunteers got their boots on the ground and walked the creeks within the City of Prescott and unincorporated county areas to document:
- drainage features (pipes, ditches, culverts)
- impacted riparian areas
- and other potential pollution sources
Fifty volunteers have assessed roughly 17 miles of creek. This data, along with water quality monitoring data, will be used to assist the Watershed Improvement Council in identifying origins of nutrients and bacteria in our watershed.
