Turtle Creek TWA 2017-2018

Purpose

A general description of the who, what, when, where, and how for the project. Rachel Sabre, Craig Helker and 2 LTE will complete a targeted watershed assessment in the Turtle Creek Huc-10 (0709000214) watershed. The streams that will be monitored are Turtle Creek, Little Turtle Creek, Darien Creek, Jackson Creek, Spring Brook ,and Unnamed tributaries, for a total of 15-20 sites in the watershed. There is recent macroinvertebrate, water chemistry, habitat and/or fish data collected for that will help with additional gaps in data for the assessment.

Objective

Targeted watershed assessment will provide enough information to add to existing recent data to evaluate the watershed for pour point total phosphorus, and collect some additional TSS. Biological FIBI, MIBI, water chemistry, habitat flow and/or DNI data will be collected where necessary. Turtle Creek WBIC 790300; Darien Creek WBIC 791800; Little Turtle Creek WBIC 791700; Jackson Creek WBIC 793100; Spring Brook WBIC 791300; Spring Brook WBIC 790500; and Unnamed Tribs WBIC 794300, 791100, 792800 there will be some that don't currently have a SWIMs station ID that will be created after site investigation in the spring.

Outcome

Provide a summary sentence describing the project outcome. Identify project deliverables. Targeted watershed plan document, and if evaluation for any stream indicates impairement - submtittal of impaired waters document.

Study Design

Identify the details of your monitoring design so that the logic behind your monitoring can be understood in light of the project type and purpose.
