  Highlights

  • Successive-year drought- and non-drought water temperatures were measured (see site maps).

  • And compared with chronic and acute standards for Colorado cold-water streams.

  • Seasonal water samples were collected and analyzed for 7 metals concentrations and 5 non-metals at 9 study area streams.

  • Baseline conditions were calculated, also.

  • The pattern of metals concentrations being below standards was examined for its stability.
