ROCK RIVER COALITION, INC: Rock River & Horicon Marsh Sampling Project #2

Purpose

The Rock River Coalition, Inc. will conduct a monitoring project on the Rock River to collect data and provide information to prove that the installation of conservation practices in the watershed resulted in improved water quality. Project deliverables include collecting and analyzing nutrient and suspended sediment samples from the two inlets and one outlet of the Horicon Marsh and sites in the East and West Rock River watersheds, compiling a list of point and nonpoint source practices installed since 2000, load computations for water year 2010, comparison on 2010 load computations with data previously collected data in 1998 and 1999 to see if improvements resulted from the practices installed, training additional citizen monitor volunteers (if necessary) to assist in the sample collection, and gathering information that will be useful in the implementation of the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) of the Rock River.
