Selected water-quality data from the Merced River, California, November 1976 through August 1977

January 1, 1994

The Merced River originates on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada and flows through Yosemite National Park. The river drains 1,276 square miles before joining the San Joaquin River near Stevinson, Calif. Data were collected from November 1976 through August 1977 to permit a description of the river 's quality during a hydrologic cycle, the natural and manmade factors in the basin that affect the quality, and the trends that can be used to reduce degradation in the future.
