Water Quality Monitoring

Water quality monitoring helps inform the restoration process and decisions that improve water quality.

When NCDEQ began water quality monitoring in 2003, 5 sites were identified as locations representative of general stream health. Information on NCDEQ’s water quality monitoring program is available through NC DEQ’s website.

We have committed to monitor stream water quality at these 5 sites with the hope of identifying trends which may indicate the efforts that are providing the most benefit. These 5 sites are spread throughout the watershed, both on the main stem of Little Alamance Creek and on tributaries to the Creek.  See monitoring results.
