The 2016 sampling season started in mid-May, ended in late August and generally included a total of four sampling events at each location. The water quality parameters sampled during the 2016 program are the same as those sampled in 2015 and consisted of temperature, Secchi depth (clarity), Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC), Total Phosphorus (nutrients), Escherichia coli (E. Coli) and Total Coliform (bacteria counts).
There were a total of 159 Secchi depth measurements, 966 Phosphorus samples, 67 DOC and 309 E. coli samples taken.
Based on our analysis of the long term data acquired to date, the water quality at most of the sampling locations remains good to excellent.
