Water Quality Control - Filtration

A measure of the landscape’s potential to improve water quality through removal of dissolved or suspended contaminants and moderation (cooling) of water temperature. In the ESII Tool outputs, this is reported as "Water Filtration". (Units: Percent Performance and Service Acres)

Engineering Units: The predicted maximum and actual removal of total suspended solids from water flowing over a site through vegetative and soil filtration processes given assumed and observed potential sources of suspended solids.
