Biological monitoring provides a long-term, stable picture of the health of our county’s streams and watersheds, as opposed to measurements of stream water chemistry that only provide an instantaneous snapshot of conditions.  The County’s monitoring program generates data which helps to rate the biological condition of watersheds into categories of ‘excellent,’ ‘good,’ ‘fair’ or ‘poor’ condition.  See our map of watershed conditions around the County.  Also, visit our Web page: www.montgomerycountymd.gov/DEP for more information.
