CalTrout completed a two-year study centered on water quality in the Mammoth Lakes Basin and presented its findings during the 2014 SNARL Lecture Series.
The study focused on identifying impairments to water quality in the Mammoth Lakes Basin with an emphasis on nutrients and metals. Working with project partners, CalTrout confirmed that nutrients are not impairing water quality. However, the study did confirm the presence of mercury in both Mammoth Creek as well as soils adjacent to the historic Mill City Stamp Mill.
