Baseline water quality conditions in the White River and Milk Creek drainages in Western Colorado were documented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency during the Fall 'low flow' period in 1975 and the Spring 'high flow' period of 1976. A total of 35 water quality parameters were measured at 19 sampling locations covering a stream reach of approximately 200 km (125 mi). Pollution parameter values exceeding recommended criteria and/or proposed stream standards were found at several locations, with the largest number of violations occurring in the downstream reach of the White River between Meeker and Rangely, Colorado. Excessive concentrations of several parameters were also measured in three White River tributary streams - Yellow Creek, Coal Creek, and Little Beaver Creek. The parameters most frequently in violation included TDS, TSS, total iron, total zinc, and total phosphorus. There was no clear indication that either the lower or higher flow rates produced the greater number of pollution problems.
