Description This report describes surface water monitoring results for best management practices (BMP) implementation at the Black River Ranch, located in southwestern Thurston County. Sampling was done from river mile (RM) 11.8 to 13.2. Implementation of BMPs occurred from 1991 to 1995, including installation of a waste management system with a solids separator and over-winter storage pond; application of waste at agronomic rates; herd-size reduction; and water conservation practices. The overall study design includes dry season pre\post monitoring and dry and wet season upstream\downstream water quality monitoring.
