- The state of Fairfax County’s streams in 2005 which shows that 57 percent of streams are in very poor to poor condition, 25 percent are in fair condition, and 18 percent are in good to excellent condition (using aquatic bugs – benthic macroinvertebrates – as an indicator).
- The updated list of impaired waters identified by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality which includes streams that are in poor quality (impaired) that do not meet state water quality standards and are not suitable for their intended uses such as swimming, fishing, or aquatic life.
