Silver Creek 303d Evaluation [SCR_03_CMP12]

Purpose

Silver Creek is listed as 303 d water for sediment, suspended solids and total phosphorus. Data will be collected, summarized and evaluated to determine if the stream should be listed or removed from the list. This evaluation will also determine if the stream is meeting the WWFF attainable use designation. Year 1 data collection is included in this proposal Year two monitoring, which is not included in this proposal, will entail more detailed monitoring for water temperature, and to repeat the Fish IBI's and collect quantitative habitat. Silver Creek WBIC: 1280000 will be monitored at two sites: Kinnamon Road and Schutte/Old LaValle Rd. No SWIMS stations set up yet. The proposal for fieldwork to collect fish, qualitative habitat, macroinvertebrates, monthly water quality samples for total suspended solids and phosphorus, and a single grab for ammonia, nitrogen series, kjeldahl, and ortho-P . Sondes will be used to collect DO samples. To evaluate the impaired waters listing for this 4.4 mile long stream. This is a proposal for a 2 year project, but the budget is for year one only.

Objective

Silver Creek is listed as 303 d water for sediment, suspended solids and total phosphorus. Data will be collected, summarized and evaluated to determine if the stream should be listed or removed from the list. This evaluation will also determine if the stream is meeting the WWFF attainable use designation. Year 1 data collection is included in this proposal, but year 2 data collection is not in this proposal. Year 2 will entail more detailed monitoring for water temperature, and to repeat the Fish IBI's and collect quantitative habitat.

Outcome

Performance Measures: 1) Number of sample sites associated with the project = 2. 2) Number of sampling events associated with project = 6. 3) Estimated date when sample collection will be complete = November 2012. 4) Estimated date when all data will be entered into appropriate database= January 2013 5) Estimated date when final report will be complete = March 2013.
