Water Quality Reports

river2These reports present the physical and chemical water quality data collected by the Water Quality Team. As a component of Chesterfield County's Watershed Assessment and Stream Protection Program (WASP), twenty-six stream sites were investigated monthly to ascertain the general state of water quality throughout the county and to identify streams that may be in need of special protection and/or remediation. Additionally, this initial data will serve as a baseline for future water quality trending throughout the county.

Sites were selected by a careful review of maps produced from the county's Geographic Information System. Streams were selected to represent a variety of sizes and watershed land uses. Additionally, ease of access was an important component of the sites that were chosen. Following the map analysis, a field survey was conducted in order to verify site locations, accessibility and feasibility. A list of stream sites was finalized and assigned a specific reference identifier consisting of the prefix "WQ" (i.e. water quality) followed by a sequentially increasing number (01 - 26) to differentiate them from other WASP program sites. Twelve of the 26 final sites overlapped with WASP Biomonitoring sites.
