This section analyzes the existing water quality of Strawberry Creek. Water quality considerations include a summary of past studies, an analysis of baseline low flow water quality, storm sampling results, and sediment sampling in both forks of the creek. Information on the existing biota of Strawberry Creek and its watershed is given in Section 4.2. Biological information is especially useful in the evaluation of long-term trends in water quality. Finally, the results of central campus point source investigations are given in Section 4.3.
