Water samples were collected along a 70 km transect in the Boulder Creek watershed in the Colorado Front Range and analyzed for major elements, trace elements, bulk organics, organic waste contaminants and pesticides. Effluent from a waste water treatment plant accounted for as much as 75% of the flow in Boulder Creek and was the largest chemical input.
