Technical report BOD characterization that was put together by the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement.
Highlights the relationship between BOD and UBOD. BODU is not a direct effect of additional BOD5.
EPA Region 4's report on the Savannah Harbor DO TMDL. A project of similar scope using the EPD-RIV1 model
EPD-RIV1 user manual
Data analysis, report production
CO staff will review all collected data and provide a recommendation on future data collection needs.
Water Quality Modeling
Data collected will be used to run EPD-RIV1 model. The model will provide a longitudinal profile of dissolved oxygen along segment BC of the Wisconsin River
Monitor Water Quality or Sediment
Effluent samples will be collected from 9 dischargers. Water quality data will be collected at 14 in stream locations. 8 sediment cores will be collected
Data will be used to develop a new BOD5 TMDL for the main stem of the Wisconsin River
