GOLDEN SANDS RC&D COUNCIL, INC.: Plover River Water Quality Project #2

Purpose

Analysis of samples from three events, two base flows and for fecal coliform at 18 sampling stations. Believe that additional sampling covering an entire year would produce data that would provide a more accurate and thorough understanding of the water quality of the Plover River. It is desirable to collect samples in accordance with the agricultural seasons; 1) Post planting but prior to emergence, 2) crops on, 3) post harvest and 4) spring law. The crops on and post harvest periods will be sampled with the current grant using funding for the two event and two base flow samples. Propose sampling for herbicides and pesticides at sites with elevated nutrient levels.
