Short Description of Activity

Diane Spooner is sampling at two sites monthly. Judith Lopez has one site in Confluence Park in Delta that is sampled monthly. 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. Filtered and non-filtered samples are mailed monthly or bi monthly to River Watch for metals assessment in their lab.


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