2005 Monitoring: Water Chemistry Data

Volunteers measured water chemistry at each monthly monitoring station. Triplicate measurements were taken to capture any variability in the water conditions and to ensure proper use of equipment and sampling protocols. Field temperature, dissolve oxygen (DO), pH, conductivity (EC), and total dissolved solids were measured in the field. Samples for nutrient testing and coliform bacteria were collected and put on ice for lab analysis later that day.
