I think those are the baseline levels.

I'm surprised that they are trying to take actions that may restrict the use of the forest based on baseline data.

This is the most stupid report on water quality that I have ever seen.

Reporting high levels of metals, originating from natural mineral sources, the Jemez Mountains are of volcanic origin; and the mention of high temperatures- from the natural hotsprings that dot the area, and are often the headwaters of the various tributaries in the mountains.

The only thing one can take away from this is "Don't drink the surface water, which is just common sense."

There is no news here, just a waste of money.
