Section 7. Abstract


Water quality monitoring began in 1995 and has continued through 1997 at which time funding for the project expired. Three years of data has been compiled and stored. Complete and accurate water quality data is needed to determine what projects can be accomplished to decrease water temperatures or increase flow. The monitoring would also show the effectiveness of any projects that are implemented by having water quality data prior to implementation and after. Almost all monitoring is done on private property and there are funds available for cost-sharing with landowners who are willing to cooperate. The overall objective is to increase water quality, improve fish habitat and remove the streams from the list of impaired waterbodies. All projects in the sub-basins would be designed to improve habitat for anadromous and resident fish. All sampling and measuring methods are in accordance with approved practices. The Onset Data Loggers are modern and reliable measuring and recording devices. All of the equipment used in the project is already on hand and is adequate or better for the field testing to be performed. The project would add three years of data to that which already exists. It is important to have data during a wide range of precipitation years. The results are compiled and analyzed at the end of each field season and made available to any resource manager or agency interested. The reports are also available to the public.
