Nolan Creek Assessment of Water Quality and Watershed Based Planning

Projects to characterize water quality in Nolan Creek, and to develop a Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) to be used in restoring the recreational use of the creek.


Portions of Nolan Creek and Little Nolan Creek have elevated bacteria concentrations, which impairs their use for swimming and other recreation. The state has also identified concerns about elevated nitrate, total phosphorus, and orthophosphorus concentrations.
