Spring Creek CBSM Project SCR_04_CMP12

Purpose

CBSM project with Spring (Lodi) Creek Watershed Team. Spring Creek WBIC 1261900, and unnamed tributary streams WBIC's: 5033820, 5033392,1262200,1262000. To provide WRS liason coordinator with funds to continue assisting in collecting continous pressure (level) and monthly flows, Temp, DO, conductivity , pH, in Spring Creek, and to continue to assist in collecting continous temperatures in Spring Creek and four tributary streams.

Objective

Project Justification: Why is the project necessary and what management question is to be addressed? The objective of Phase III of this watershed wide water quality project is to further refine rating curves for discharges at 5 sites in Spring Creek and a tributary. This is a cooperative project with Spring Creek Watershed Team, County L&WCD, who received two has applied for river planning grants to collect surface water chemistry data in conjuction with flows, and with UW-SP who will assist with the rating curves and analysis of water chemistry. The final goal is a model that will predict how pollutants will change with changing water levels, where the major sources of pollutants are coming from in the watershed, and how flows and pollutants will change with increased development in the watershed.

Outcome

Performance Measures: 1) Number of sample sites associated with the project is 15. 2) Number of sampling events associated with project = 9 3) Estimated date when sample collection will be complete= November 2011. 4) Estimated date when all data will be entered into appropriate database is January 2012. 5) Estimated date when final report will be complete May 2012.

Activities & Recommendations
Citizen-Based Stream Monitoring
Initial project completed, moving into phase 2 for watershed modeling of Spring Creek
Citizen-Based Stream Monitoring
Collect chemical, physical, and/or biological water quality data to assess the current overall stream health. The data can inform management decisions and may be used to identify impaired waters for biennial lists.
