CURECANTI WATER-QUALITY NETWORK
The National Park Service and the US Geological Survey have entered into a partnership to collect and quality assure water-quality data for streams entering or within the boundaries of the Curecanti National Recreation Area (CNRA). Data were collected by Park Service personnel and reviewed by USGS personnel. The study area is located in the central southwest part of the State. The purpose of the data collection effort is to assess the quality of the surface-water resource prior to significant expected population growth upstream of CNRA. The goal of this program is to provide data that will assist the National Park Service in "helping to protect and enhance the quality of Park water".
