Since the release of our latest county-wide stream survey, Headwaters has received a substantial amount of attention in the local media. Here is a quick round-up of local press features that will serve to interpet and summarize some of the more complex sections of the report.

And finally, the folks over at WMMT-FM have used water quality as the basis of this week’s Mountain News & World Report.
