Holgate Creek Assessment and Monitoring Project Final Report
In July 2005, US Fish & Wildlife Service awarded a grant to Takshanuk Watershed Council to complete a baseline assessment and monitoring project on Holgate Creek in Haines, Alaska. TWC used juvenile fish trapping and benthic macroinvertebrate field sampling as well as water quality monitoring and chemistry to develop a baseline understanding of the watershed. A second major component of the project was to delineate the watershed boundary using Global Positioning Systems and Geographic Information Systems (GPS and GIS). This watershed boundary would help TWC, the Haines Borough, and agencies guide management decisions within the watershed.
