Bark River TMDL

Purpose

The project portion of the Bark River includes that portion of the river listed on the 303(d) list for low dissolved oxygen due to excessive Phosphorus. The monitoring described below, developed in consultation with Department Staff, will assist in developing a TMDL for this portion of the Bark River. A surface water grab sample will be collected once monthly by WT Staff (July, August, September) at three locations (Hwy 18 and Utica Road, Hwy 67, and Genesee Lake Road) and analyzed for the following: Total P Total Dissolved Phosphorus (as P) Nitrogen Series Suspended Solids Chlorophyll a 120-Day Ultimate BOD

Objective

SER has been directed to develop 5 TMDLs annually. Conducting the monitoring described will allow for TMDL development for this 303(d) listed segment of the Bark River.

Outcome

Monthly collection, deployment, and downloading of continuous DO recording data sondes in July, August, and September. Monthly sampling in July, August, and September Collection and mailings of samples Development of TMDL by June 30, 2007.
