Project Overview

This project is for on-going sampling and lab analysis for suspended sediment concentration and bedload at select sites, support for continuous Suspended Sediment Concentration measurement using turbidity and Acoustic Doppler Velocity Meter sensors, 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.
