Project Overview

This grant will cover all components of water chemistry sampling for pollutant load monitoring at four sites. Of those four sites, two of them are subwatershed sites that will be monitored seasonally and two of them are basin/major watershed sites that will be monitored year round. The Monitoring Coordinator for the Sauk River Watershed District will be responsible for sample collection, data management tasks, attending weekly call in meetings and will coordinate additional help from other staff members and/or interns if needed. For the two subwatershed sites, 23 samples (plus two QA/QC samples) will be collected at each site between ice out and October 31, 2015 with a focus on runoff event sampling. For the basin and major watershed sampling sites, 32 samples (plus three QA/QC samples) will be collected throughout the year of the grant. These samples will also focus on snowmelt and runoff events. Samples will be collected using the Watershed Pollutant Load Monitoring Network (WPLMN) Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for AIS and non AIS waters.
