Weekly Watershed Water Quality

Check out our weekly watershed results from July 14th. You will notice there is no data for two of the locations. This is due to lack of precipitation causing these two locations to dry out. You will also notice there is a particularly high phosphorus count at Bailey Brook. This could be due to excessive fertilizer runoff or urban runoff. A few ways that you can help reduce phosphorus pollution is by using phosphorus-free fertilizer on your lawn and gardens and sweeping your grass clippings or keeping them on your lawn instead of blowing them onto the streets and sidewalks.
