Lester - Amity Stressor Map

This map shows the entire Lester-Amity watershed and the patches of smaller sub-watersheds for each stream within it.

Red colors on the map indicate areas with the most potential to stress streams. The colors represent composite scores that represent population and road density in a given area and reflect conditions on the land both near and upstream of that area. They also suggest where stream stress-causers may accumulate as water flows from each sub-watershed into main streams and, ultimately, to the mouth of the Lester River on Lake Superior. The scores signal to scientists where streams may be stressed and help them decide where to focus their research in the watershed. Learn more in the Fall 2007 Stream-Line.
