Pictures of Streams and Metals Sampling Locations in the Boulder-Elkhorn TMDL Planning Area


This page contains pictures of streams that are being assessed for metal and nutrient impairments in the Boulder-Elkhorn TMDL Planning Area. All but one of the photos was taken during the June, 2009 sampling event during which streams were sampled for metals. Pictures were taken at sampling locations detailed in the 2009 Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP) on pages 6-8. The SAP can be found on the Boulder Elkhorn Documents page. Sample site IDs are provided in the picture captions if you wish to match up photos with information in the SAP. This page does not contain photos of every sampling site.



Streams are listed alphabetically. Pictures under each stream are ordered from upstream to downstream.
