Project Overview

The stream monitoring will follow the stream monitoring parameters and frequency tables outlined in the Surface Water Assessment Grant (SWAG) Request for Proposals (RFP). Specifically over the two-year grant period, monitoring will include 19 sets of field measurements for specific conductance, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, secchi tube readings, and one upstream photograph at each visit. In 2014, all 18 sites will be sampled bi-monthly May-September for total suspended volatile solids, total suspended solids, total phosphorus, ammonia-nitrogen, total Kjeldahl nitrogen, nitrate-nitrogen, sulfate, chloride, and hardness as CaCO3. From June-August, E. coli will be sampled three times per month. Two of the eighteen sites will also be monitored following the river nutrient sampling regime and in 2014 will require sampling for chlorophyll a, corrected for pheophytin, twice monthly from June-August and once in September. A QA/QC field replicate sample will be collected at all sites the last round of July. In 2015, the 18 sites will be sampled for E. coli bi-monthly from June-August. The two river nutrient sampling sites will also be sampled for total phosphorus, total Kjeldahl nitrogen, nitrate-nitrogen, and chlorophyll a, corrected for pheophytin, bi-monthly from June-August.
