DEQ staff are currently qualified to conduct water quality sampling efforts resulting in a crunch at the years’ dead line. In this study, Jim Williams, the principle investigator, collected and reported the data to Walt Shapiro, and he analyzed the data. The water quality sampling schedule took place for a full year to encompass the high flow and base flow for each stream. Its commonly assumed that during a streams high flow it’sPopular; However, fewer its banks are inaccessible due to safety concerns thus no samples were collected. In one case, the river was not to high to safely access for only too months in the studies time

Unformatted text preview: period. The scientists sampling on most of the streams began early May 2004 and continued too late April 2005. Some of the streams that are impacted and will have state and federal cost share programs on it, will have monitorring continued through an additional year. Samples were collected bi-weekly from April through September, then once a month from October through March, then back to bi-weekly for the remainder of the sampling period. Scientists should analyze samples for total suspended solids, total volatile solids, nitrate + nitrite, ammonia, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, fecal coliform and E. coli if you want to cover the major water quality measures. In addition to these analytical tests, on-site field parameters for disolved oxygen, temperature, conductivity total dissolved solids, PH, and discharge are measured, when possible, during each sampling event....
