Stream Flow 2000

This bar graph shows the average flow of County streams and lake outfalls measured in 2000. The plot provides a general indication of the ranking of stream and lake outfall flows in 2000. Observe that highest stream flow was measured in Solon Creek, the lowest in Ennis Creek. The impact of a stream on the water quality of the receiving lake is dependent on the nutrient loading to the lake. The loading is the product of the stream flow and the nutrient concentration. Note that the lake outlet flows are higher than the tributary flows.
