Now let’s look at what the data actually means. If you did not get a chance to go out in the field yourself and collect data, you can look up historical data that we have collected from your watershed here! Simply find a collection point close to where you live.

Water Quality Standards

An increase in water temperature can affect aquatic life in the following ways:

  • Decreased oxygen availability.
  • Increased metabolic rate.
  • Decreased Spawning success.
  • Decreased Survival of embryos.
