Short Description of Activity

Diane Spooner is sampling at two sites. She makes one trip a month to both sites. Judith Lopez has one site in Confluence Park in Delta that is sampled monthly. Judith also assisted at another site but no hours are included here for that. Samples are taken each time and submitted for assessment of metals. Protocols are done by Diane and Judith monthly to determine Oxygen levels, alkalinity , hardness, and pH. Other data is provided to River Watch on water temperature and river flow. Data is reported to River Watch and CPW.


Goal is being met to provide consistent data on the river to aid with decisions about its health and uses.
