LowLow condition ratings are generally reflective of areas with high development intensity (e.g., the little presence or low use by critical species or little or no presence of rare, endangered or highly sensitive habitats).
MediumMedium condition ratings are generally reflective of areas with either high or moderate development intensity and moderate or low insignificant biological value.
HighHigh condition ratings are generally reflective of areas with low development intensity (e.g., substantial forest cover, relatively few roads crossing aquatic areas and wetlands, low amounts of impervious surfaces, and low amounts armoring and structures along shorelines) and a significant biological value (e.g., the presence or high use by critical species or the presence of rare, endangered or highly sensitive habitats).
_Study_Unit_Drainage catchment for a tributary stream, or a reach of the river main-stem. These catchments and reaches are the atomic units on which the analysis was performed. The catchments and reaches are based on the standard drainage basin layers, with additional divisions made with existing DNRP project data.
