Water is impaired due to one or more pollutants and associated quality impacts.
Notes
Batavia Creek was evaluated in 2014 and every two-year cycle through 2022. Phosphorus levels were too high for healthy aquatic communities like plants, bugs, and fish. In 2016 this creek was evaluated for temperature the water was too warm for healthy aquatic communities. This water was listed for temperature in 2016 and phosphorus in 2014.
