  Mercury Accumulation by Lower Trophic-level Organisms in Lentic Systems within the Guadalupe River Watershed, ...
Because of widespread interest in ecosystem effects associated with historic mercury mining within and downgradient of the Guadalupe Riverwatershed, transfer of mercury to lower trophic-level organisms was examined.
Ancillary data, including dissolved organic carbon and trace-metal concentrations as well as vertical profiles of temperature, dissolved oxygen, specific conductance and pH, were gathered to provide a water-quality framework from which to compare the results for mercury.
It is worth reemphasizing that this data set represents a single “snap shot” of conditions in water bodies within the Guadalupe River watershed to: (1) fill gaps in trophic transfer information, and (2) provide a scientific basis for future process-based studies with enhanced temporal and spatial coverage.

While urban rivers are still generally cleaner today than they were in the 1970s, cities and developers have reason to be concerned about two worrisome trends: reduced enforcement of federal clean water laws and regulations and decreased investments in sewage infrastructure nationwide.
Because funding for waste treatment is not keeping up with growing populations and aging systems, EPA officials warn that sewage levels — and odors — in urban rivers could return to 1970s levels by 2016.
