This is a map of the EPA Landcover/Landuse in the Arcata sub-basin, based on a 1992 Landsat TM satellite image. The portion of the project area centered in Eureka is heavily urbanized (shown in hot pink). Flat areas in the northern portion are mostly agriculture (orange). The majority of land use in this sub-basin is agricultural, sand-shrub-herbaceous, and urban-commercial-residential.
