Stream Assessment Report for Hillsborough River Available

Now available in the Atlas Digital Library: "Stream Assessment Report for Hillsborough River Reaches, Hillsborough County, Florida"

This assessment was conducted to update and enhance existing physical and ecological data for the river reaches of the Hillsborough River. The project is part of the Hillsborough County Lake Assessment program which in 2009 was expanded to include streams. The project is funded by Hillsborough County and the Southwest Florida Water Management District's Northwest Hillsborough, Hillsborough River and Alafia River Basin Boards. The goal of the stream assessment projects is to provide additional data on the river reaches where Stream WaterWatch volunteer stream monitor sites exist and, where appropriate, the greater stream or river reach.
