Description A water quality screening was conducted in the Dakota, Bertrand, and Fishtrap Creek watersheds in February-March 1992. The objective was to identify water quality problem areas during wet season runoff conditions to assist in prioritizing areas for further investigation and targeting of source controls. However, precipitation was low and runoff conditions did not occur during the study period. Nonetheless, areas of poor water quality were identified. Water quality standards violations for fecal coliform bacteria, dissolved oxygen, ammonia, and nitrate appear to be associated with agricultural land use, particularly commercial dairies.
