AbstractIn summary, the goal of this report is to provide: ? An interpretive summary of chemistry trends for each subwatershed sampled in the Oneida Lake watershed; ? A prioritization of the tributaries, based on nutrient and soil loss; and ? A comparison between nutrient and soil loss from Oneida Lake subwatersheds to other central New York watersheds with different land use practices.

Chemical Analysis and Nutrient Loading Of: Salmon Creek, Otis Creek, Black Creek, Spencerport Sewage Treatment Plant, Precipitation Falling in Western Monroe County: with a discussion on The Trophic Status of Long Pond and Stress Stream Analysis of Northrup and Buttonwood CreeksMakarewicz, Joseph C.; Lewis, Theodore W.; The College at Brockport (1990-08-01)The purpose of the RAP project is to prepare water quality management action plans for watersheds in the three basins (Genesee, Lake Ontario West, and Lake Ontario Central) within Monroe County that empty into the Rochester Embayment. These basinwide plans would be prepared using existing data and literature on each of the three basins. In some instances where baseline and storm event data were not available, such as the Lake Ontario West Basin, it would be necessary to collect the required data. As part of the local contribution to Rochester Embayment Remedial Action Plan, the Monroe County Health contracted with SUNY Brockport in 1988 to collect such data. The general objectives of the 1988 study of Buttonwood, Larkin, Northrup and Round Pond Creeks were: To compare the water quality of stream water from various watersheds; obtain time trend data on chemical and physical characteristics of runoff water of these creeks; To obtain time trend data on chemical and physical characteristics of runoff water of these creeks; To estimate nutrient mass loadings of streams; and To establish and maintain a statistically defensible data set that would permit determination of baseline conditions for evaluations of trends. This work has been completed and is reported in “Chemical Analysis of Water from Buttonwood, Larkin, Northrup, and Round Pond Creeks, Lake Ontario Basin West, May 1987-May 1988” (Makarewicz 1989). The 1989-90 study reported here has a similar set of objectives as the 1988 study but with a focus on Salmon Creek and Otis Creek. In addition, the 1989-90 study was broadened to include the following: Determination of nutrient loads of the Barge Canal to Salmon Creek; A stress stream analysis of Northrup and Buttonwood Creek; Our 1988 study had suggested that there were anthropogenic sources of phosphorus and nitrogen within the watersheds of Northrup and Buttonwood Creeks. Determination of nutrient loads of the Spencerport Sewage Treatment Plant to Northrup Creek; Determination of the nutrient loads to Long Pond from Black Creek as compared to Northrup Creek; Determination of the trophic status of Long Pond; and Determination of nutrient and heavy metal loads from precipitation occurring in western Monroe County.
The Relationship between Habitat Variables and the Distribution of the Creek Chub, Semotilus atromaculatus, and the Hornyhead Chub, Nocomis biguttatus, In Sandy, Salmon, and Northrup Creeks, Monroe County, New YorkHaynes, James M.; Burke, Brian Patrick; The College at Brockport (2000-11-01)The creek chub, Semotilus atromaculatus, and the hornyhead chub, Nocomis biguttatus, along with numerous other minnow (Family Cyprinidae) species, are found in streams throughout Monroe County. Interestingly, however, only creek chubs have been found in Salmon Creek, only hornyhead chubs have been found in Sandy Creek, and both chubs have been found in parts of Northrup Creek. A review of the life history of these species suggests that differences in width of stream, depth of stream, midstream current, and edge of stream current may account for this distribution. In this study a number of habitat parameters were measured at various sites within all three of the streams. The resulting data suggests that differences in midstream and edge of stream current may account for the differing distribution of creek chubs and hornyhead chubs among streams.
Analysis of the Existing Water Quality Database for the Sandy Creek and South Sandy Creek Watersheds – 1997 to 2005Makarewicz, Joseph C.; Lewis, Theodore W.; The College at Brockport (2006-10-01)Runoff from agricultural lands containing soil and nutrients poses a known threat to the water quality of embayments and coastal regions of Lake Ontario (Makarewicz 2000). The Lakeview Marsh State Wildlife Management Area in Jefferson County, NY is a prime example of these types of ecologically valuable coastal wetland and embayment habitats. This embayment / wetland complex is fed by the watersheds of Sandy Creek and South Sandy Creek. The mouths of these creeks contain globally rare freshwater dunes, diverse wetlands and several types of globally rare vegetation. Sandy Creek also provides an emergency unfiltered drinking water supply for the Village of Adams and the Hamlet of Adams Center. In general, the environmental effects of agricultural runoff, including eutrophication and sedimentation, on surface water bodies are serious local, regional and national issues. These issues create a dilemma for governmental leaders in agricultural areas; their most important economic industry, agriculture, may also be the cause of environmental degradation. For farmers, this is further exacerbated by the high profile increase of governmental regulation on agricultural operations. The agricultural industry needs scientific evidence that they are capable of being part of the solution not just part of the problem.
