Description Water quality was monitored in the major freshwater tributaries of Burley Lagoon and Minter Bay from December 1992 through March 1993. The objective was to evaluate water quality in the Burley and Minter Creek watersheds after 10 years of remedial action implementation. Elevated levels of fecal coliform bacteria (FC) continue to result in Class AA water quality violations throughout the watersheds.
