Analysis of the Water Quality of Eighteenmile Creek, Erie County, New York
Water Quality Analysis
Eighteenmile Creek
2.8 MB PDF
Eighteenmile Creek, Erie County, New York, flows from south to north then turns west to empty into Lake Erie (Figure 2.1). The watershed of Eighteenmile Creek includes parts of several communities including Eden, Evans, Hamburg, and Boston. The purpose of this research project is to: 1. Compare historical data to data from field samples collected in 2000 to determine if a change has occurred in the waterway and 2. Compare data from all sampling years to present day water quality sampling standards. Previous studies conducted by the Erie County Department of Health (ECDH) in 1970 and 1973 included testing for total coliforms, fecal coliforms, biological oxygen demand (BOD), orthophosphates, chlorides and nitrates. Therefore, the 2000 sample data collection concentrated on the above parameters to evaluate current water quality. The results of this study will help to describe or characterize the present state of the water quality at Eighteenmile Creek and provide information to the surrounding communities of Eden, Evans, Hamburg and Boston.
