Cobus Creek Watershed Diagnostic Study
In November 2015 the St. Joseph River Basin Commission received an Indiana Department of Natural Resources Lake and River Enahancement program grant to study the water quality within Cobus Creek Watershed. More specifically, the study will describe the current water quality trends and conditions within the watershed, identify potentail water quality problems, prioritize potential conservation or improvement projects within the watershed, and predict and assess factors of success for future work within the watershed. The scope of work for the study includes gathering and mapping current environmental data, collecting current chemical, biological, and habitat data, modeling pollution in lakes and streams, prioritizing management potential projects, and producing a final document.
