This study evaluated the water quality impairments from the mining industry (specifically of stibnite, tungsten, gold, silver, and mercury) along the East Fork of the South Fork Salmon River (EFSFSR) in central Idaho (U.S.). Using over 5 years of monitoring data collected along the EFSFSR, the concentrations of the studied metal contaminants were analyzed, and a baseline condition for the EFSFSR was determined.
