Oregon Creek Illicit Discharge Inspection

Water quality conditions were surveyed by sampling six locations along Oregon Creek on July 24, 2001 and one location in an upstream stormwater discharge on July 25, 2001. Samples were tested for temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, unionized ammonia nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen, chlorides, and specific conductivity. Sampling locations are shown in the figure below. No illicit discharges to Oregon Creek were identified in the watershed reconnaissance or sampling program.
