SWAG-10 Rock River Main Tributaries Surface Water Assessments
This project is a comprehensive two year water sampling program that will effectively assess the water quality of three main tributaries that contribute to the Rock River. These tributaries are the Champepadan Creek, Mound Creek and an unnamed Creek. The sampling frequency will be two times per month in the year 2010 and three times per month in the year 2011. Sampling will begin in April, when the channels are mostly free of ice and continue until October each year. The project goal is to provide a sufficient data set for assessment needs for aquatic life & aquatic recreation beneficial uses.
