How's My Waterway?

Check out the EPA website that provides general reference about the health of our local waterways. Water quality is monitored for physical, chemical and biological factors as they relate to swimming, aquatic life, safety of eating the fish and drinking the water. The monitoring results are assessed against state water quality standards approved by EPA.
