Description

Lanana Creek is one of two springs that surround Nacogdoches, TX. Lanana Creek starts southwest of Lake Naconiche, conjoining with several other bodies of water along its path, and becomes part of the Angelina River. This body of water eventually ends in the Gulf of Mexico which may contribute to the dead zone. Contaminants in water may be of small concentration; however, prolonged exposure could produce many negative effects. To monitor future change in the creek, whether natural or human-induced, a baseline of targeted species for the creek waters must be established as a “snapshot” of the Nacogdoches Lanana Creek area. Events that could change the baseline include, but are not limited to, floods, fertilizers and pesticides used in rural farms, and urban runoff.
