The primary objective of this report is to evaluate the existing water quality monitoring network in the Tongue and Powder River Basins and to recommend needed modifications to the present sampling program. As a basis for these recommendations, known developments, both present and planned, are discussed, and available data examined. The impact of developers on both water quality and quantity is defined. Two areas of particular concern are coal strip mining activities in the vicinity of Sheridan and oil field operations in the Salt Creek watershed.
