About Our Site
During the fall of 2014 MSU Extension Water Quality launched a data collection and organization effort on Mandeville Creek, which runs through the Montana State University campus and the town of Bozeman, MT. In conjunction with MSU Facilities Services, the effort aims to better understand the impacts construction and best management practices (BMP's) have on Mandeville Creek as it flows through campus. Additionally, using the data collected to highlight the effects of urbanization on water quality, Mandeville Creek could serve as a case study for other urban watersheds in Bozeman, as well as elsewhere. Though the collection effort is focused on the MSU section of the creek, future projects will hopefully incorporate the rest of the creek and additional community partners.
