Sherry Sass, Friends of the Santa Cruz River, says "RiverWatch" is the group’s water quality monitoring program. She says the monitoring has been on-going since 1992 and is the most complete database available on the river’s water quality. She says sanitized effluent (treated wastewater) is discharged into the river from the bi-national Wastewater Treatment Plant and has helped restore many miles of riparian habitat which were lost several decades ago from agricultural pumping.
