This is a map of EPA Landcover/Landuse in the Petaluma River sub-basin, based on a 1992 Landsat TM satellite image. Flat areas are mostly covered in agriculture (orange) and residential (hot pink), with some commercial-industrial (purple). The hot pink area in the center of sub-basin is the city of Petaluma. There is some coniferous forest (blue) and mixed forest (dark green) in the upland areas, especially the San Antonio Creek watershed. Data were provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
