Final report on determining pollution sources to Rock Lake. Results from 2009 study done by the Jefferson County Land and Water Conservation Department.
The Rock Lake Improvement Association plans to identify sources of bacteria, sediment and nutrients to Rock Lake, Jefferson County, from the Southwest Subwatershed of the lake, known as Miljoha Shores, and suggesting viable solutions to the problem. They will monitor the stream and channel during lowflow and rainfall events to identify pollution sources, estimate loading rates, collect fish specimens to characterize the aquatic communities, and provide design specifications to eliminate or reduce the pollution sources. Deliverables include a final report with raw and interpreted data to characterize aquatic community and water quality, as well as pollution sources identified, and recommendations for water quality improvements in the stream. Final results will be shared at a public lake association meeting
