Project Overview

This project will conduct on-going sampling and lab analysis for suspended sediment concentration at select sites. It will also develop real-time continuous suspended sediment concentration measurements using turbidity and Acoustic Doppler Velocity Meter sensors, data analysis and draft United States Geological Survey (USGS) Scientific Investigations Report, and comparison of sampling and laboratory methods for total suspended solids and suspended sediment concentrations. The project provides information for defining sediment loading and movement in streams and rivers to adequately address excess sediment problems in Minnesota water bodies.
