Stream Assessment

 
 
 
 
 
 
On June 9, 2017, the North Fork Watershed Association and the Jefferson Conservation District assisted Susquehanna University in sampling 8 unassessed streams in the North Fork Watershed.  The purpose of the Unassessed Waters Initiative is to determine if cold water streams are home to wild trout, including the eastern brook trout.  The presence of wild trout indicates exceptional water quality that benefits multiple priority species.
