Rapid Stream Assessment Technique Scale
In 2011, we assessed all the streams in the County as part of the Stormwater Master Plan Update. The assessment used the Channel Evolution Model to evaluate which sections of the streams are actively eroding to prioritize them for stream restoration. During that assessment, more than 60 percent of Lower Long Branch was stabilizing and more than 80 percent of the stream partially or fully stabilized.
Bacteria Monitoring Data
There is one bacteria monitoring site on Lower Long Branch. Learn more about bacteria monitoring data.
- Blue line: Measured bacteria levels.
- Orange line: Primary contact recreation water quality standard, 235 E. coli CFU/100 mL. Primary contact recreation activities have a high probability for total body immersion or ingestion of water, like swimming, canoeing and kayaking.
- Gray line: Secondary contact recreation water quality standard, 1,173 E. coli CFU/100 mL. Secondary contact recreation activities don’t have a high probability of total body immersion or water ingestion, like skipping rocks or fishing.
