Total Phosphorus Monitoring Gap Analysis

Purpose

The Water Action Volunteers program participants collect total phosphorus samples at sites that have been previously listed as impaired for total phosphorus but which lack supporting data or sufficient supporting data to help the biologists obtain a clearer picture of water quality and supplement data necessary for reporting. During each visit, volunteers collect water samples and ship them to the State Lab of Hygiene to be analyzed for total phosphorus.

Prior to Wisconsin having a state standard for phosphorus in surface waters, water bodies were listed as impaired for phosphorus based on a biologist's best professional judgment. In 2012, WAV volunteers monitored 12 sites for phosphorus to help confirm certain streams were indeed impaired by that nutrient. Volunteers are continuing to monitor these stations in 2013 because the drought of 2012 was considered an extreme weather event.
