Herrera Environmental Consultants, Inc. and Pacific Groundwater Group conducted a watershed health assessment, using available data, to evaluate the ecological condition of Vancouver’s watersheds, to identify data gaps, and to help the City prioritize watershed management programs and activities. The analysis included a spatial (GIS-based) statistical analysis to determine whether landscape conditions (such as, land use, terrain, and septic system density) and watershed management (e.g., stormwater facilities and habitat restoration) showed statistically significant correlations with water quality in the Burnt Bridge Creek watershed.
