Mercury Concentrations in Surface Waters, Bad River Watershed, Wisconsin, 2006-2016

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

These data represent mercury (Hg), filtered total Hg (FTHg), filtered methylmercury (FMHg), particulate total Hg (PTHg), particulate methylmercury (PMHg), total mercury (THg), dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and total organic carbon (TOC) concentrations in surface water samples collected on Bad River Tribal lands. Several samples were collected at multiple locations on the Bad River and Tyler Forks Creek, and one location on Bull Gus Creek. Additionally, one sample was collected at each of four unknown locations on four Bad River tributaries and two samples at a lake of unknown location. All samples were collected during 2006 to 2016. Neither the collection of water samples nor the Hg analyses were performed by the U.S. Geological Survey, New York Water Science Center.
