The monitoring described below, developed in consultation with Department Staff, will assist in developing a TMDL for thermal impacts, for this portion of the Scuppernong River. Three continuous recording thermisters will be deployed at sites within the Scuppernong River TMDL reach. In addition, one will be deployed upstream of the listed reach, and one will be deployed downstream. Two additional thermisters are requested so as to be available should additional sites be warranted. Wadable Tier I data (2006) will be included as appropriate. Finally, 3 habitat sites (following standard baseline protocol) will be sited within, upstream, and downstream of the listed segments.
