FRIENDS OF PHEASANT BRANCH: Tributary of Pheasant Branch Monitoring

Purpose

The Friends of the Pheasant Branch will sponsor a monitoring project on a tributary of the Pheasant Branch by collecting grab samples at 5 sites on the tributary during or immediately after snowmelt or larger rainfall runoff events. The project will evaluate the effectiveness of the recently dredged ponds and combined conservation practices in reducing sediment and nutrient loads entering Pheasant Branch Marsh and continue to collect flow data from the springs to establish a data base to help in evaluating future changes possibly caused by well pumping or land use. Project Deliverables include - 1. Electronic or weblink to Flow, Kjeldahl nitrogen, total phospherous and total sediment sampling results of 4 events in FY 2011 and 3 events in FY2012 at 5 locations. 2. Electronic copy of Conservation practices effectiveness analysis. 3. Electronic copy or weblink of Fredrick Springs flow measurements. 4. Electronic or hard copy of brochure or fact sheet. 5. Electronic copy newsletter containing analysis results. 6. Public meeting agenda with date and location and attendance list for meeting presenting data.
