Sampling Palmetto
The Lake Fork Watershed Stakeholders of Lake City, CO regularly monitor water quality in the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River with coordination from their OSM/VISTA. Palmetto Gulch, seen here, is listed on the EPA's 303d list of contaminated streams.

Our Mission:

WHWT is a coalition of community/watershed improvement groups, confronting the challenges that remain from historic mining in the West. We address environmental degradation and community impoverishment, providing rural mining communities with the skills and capacity they need to make their neighborhoods / watersheds better places to live and work.
