Hoosic River Water Quality Report for 2014 – The Hoosic’s water quality is the best it has ever been!
Comparing the 2014 water quality assessment category for each station to prior year assessments indicates that the water quality remains similar at stations HOOS 01 and 02. From HOOS 02 downstream, on the mainstem of the Hoosic River, there is notable improvement in several of the stations water quality. It is noteworthy that six of these stations reach their highest ever documented water quality assessment scores and that HooRWA’s water quality monitoring program are documenting
these water quality trends. For the full report – please check under the Monitoring heading.
