south river monitoring

Since 2007, the Federation has compiled an annual South River Scorecard. Each year, the Scorecard presents data on key indicators of River health, such as: water clarity, dissolved oxygen, underwater grasses, and the abundance of aquatic life. Much of the data in the Scorecard has been collected by the South Riverkeeper, but the report also utilizes data from a variety of respected sources such as the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences.

View both the 2017 Scorecard and the centerfold-out graphics. This year, the scorecard booklet had a foldout map of the river showing creek grades, as well as the a Best & Worst of the River for 2017. See the slideshow presentation here.
