Section 7. Abstract


The Kittitas Reclamation District (KRD) currently operates a water quality monitoring program of limited scope. With the implementation of the proposed water conservation and water quality enhancement projects, it will be valuable to expand the sampling and analysis program. In order to accomplish the level of monitoring that will be needed to measure the success of the projects, more staff and increased analytical services will be needed. It is proposed that one part time technician be hired to collect samples and manage the analytical results. The KRD proposes to continue to contract with qualified laboratories for analytical services. A limited amount of equipment will be purchased to allow time and environment sensitive parameters to be measured at the time of sample collection. The water quality monitoring program would be expanded immediately and would continue indefinitely. Funding is requested for the first two years of the program. After the program is fully operational, the KRD will be able cover the costs through increased assessments. The success of the program will be vital to the other conservation and water quality improvements proposed.
