Bugs, Bacteria, and Channel Stability: SLCo Watershed Data Collection

Since 2011 SLCO Watershed Planning and Restoration Program (WPRP) has been collecting data to look at water quality in the streams and rivers of Salt Lake County. In the following years WPRP has been built up to collect bacteria and field chemistry monthly, macroinvertebrate data annually, and channel stability data from the Jordan River and all its major tributaries. This presentation aims to explain the purpose and specifics of these data collection methods, the obstacles encountered along the way, and the potential use of this information.
