Technical Bulletin No. 0896: Long-Term Receiving Water Study: Codorus Creek Water Quality Assessment 1997 to 2003

The Long-Term Receiving Water Study (LTRWS) was begun in 1997 to examine the possible influence of pulp and paper mill effluent discharges on receiving water ecosystems. This technical bulletin summarizes the findings for the first six years of one component of the LTRWS (water quality) at one location, Codorus Creek. The Codorus is a wadeable, effluent-dominated receiving water in southeastern Pennsylvania.
