The Nutrioso Creek TMDL Partnerships
Abstract:Nutrioso Creek is a tributary to the Little Colorado River located in the White Mountains near Springerville, Arizona. Nutrioso Creek was listed as being impaired due to violation for the turbidity water quality standards due to samples taken in 1993–1996. The listed segment was from the headwaters to the confluence with Picnic Creek, a 27 miles section, and from Picnic Creek to the confluence with the Little Colorado River, 3.7 miles. A Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) was created linking turbidity to suspended sediment (TSS) that was being contributed to the stream due to eroding stream banks at higher discharge flow values.
