Redwood Cottonwood Rivers Surface Water Assessment Grant (SWAG)
In 2017 and 2018, Redwood-Cottonwood Rivers Control Area (RCRCA) will collect water chemistry samples from the 10 lakes and 24 stream sites identified in the Redwood and Cottonwood River watersheds. Six samples will be collected at 10 lakes from May through September in 2017; five samples will be collected at 5 lakes in 2018 from May through September. Eleven samples will be collected at each of the 24 stream sites following the Basic Regime in 2017. Sixteen samples at each stream site will be collected in 2017 and 2018 following the E.coli monitoring regime. Nine stream sites will be monitored following the River Nutrient sampling regime. One site will be monitored as a Drinking Water designated stream. All QA/QC procedures will be followed during sample collection. Data collected will be entered into the Environmental Quality Information System (EQuIS); interim reports and final report will be submitted as due.
