Summary
The objective of this effort was to quantify spatial/temporal variability of selected water quality parameters within the Guana system. Water quality observations in this system have been very limited historically and this study aimed to develop a baseline survey of water quality conditions over a variety of seasonal conditions and a spatial gradient. Besides the spatial gradient objective, sites were selected at Mickler’s weir and either side of Guana dam to study hydrologic connections.
Parameters
Total nitrogen (mg/L), NO2 + NO3 (mg/L), NH4 (mg/L), dissolved organic nitrogen (mg/L), fecal coliform (CFU/100mL), total phosphorus (mg/L), PO4 (mg/L), chlorophyll a (ug/L), chlorophyll b (ug/L), chlorophyll c (ug/L), pheophytin (ug/L), total kjeldahl nitrogen (mg/L), total dissolved kjeldahl nitrogen (mg/L), Enterococcus (MPN/100mL), temperature (deg. C), specific conductance (uS/cm), pH, dissolved oxygen (% and mg/L)), salinity (ppt)
Notes
Future updates will be provided through WIN.
