Quality Assurance Project Plan: Lake Chelan Water Quality Monitoring Study - Total Phosphorus, Orthophosphate, Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite, Total Persulfate Nitrogen, Alkalinity, Total Organic Carbon, Chlorophyll a, pH, Temperature, Specific Conductivity, and Dissolved Oxygen (Number of pages: 67) (Publication Size: 2034KB)
|Description||The Lake Chelan Watershed Planning Unit (LCWPU) intends to initiate a Long Term Monitoring Plan (LTMP) to assess the water quality conditions of Lake Chelan and to use the LTMP data to identify and support evaluation of any trends in water quality. Historical data are sporadic, localized, and discontinuous and therefore potentially problematic for evaluating water quality trends. The initial year of LTMP data will be collected at eight lake monitoring stations and at two tributary streams during three monitoring events in 2016. Data collection will consist of field-monitored water quality parameters and laboratory-analyzed water samples. The first year of LTMP monitoring will be conducted to assess TMDL effectiveness, following similar procedures as previous TMDL effectiveness monitoring in 1995, 1996, and 2007.|
