Watershed Health Index Scores show patterns of health within each of the five components. Scores are scaled 0 (least healthy) to 100 (best health). They use a red to green color ramp for low to high health scores.
The Biology Health Index Scores compare the condition of land and water habitats, the diversity and sensitivity of species present, and the health of aquatic animal communities in our streams.
The Geomorphology Health Index Scores compare conditions and that influence the movement of landscape forming materials. Different landscapes have different levels of risk from destabilizing events and conditions.
Combined Watershed Health Score
The Watershed Health Index Scores are combined to create an overall watershed mean or average score.
