Quality Assurance Project Plan: Characterization of Groundwater Discharge to Lake Whatcom
Acrobat PDF format (Number of pages: 21) (Publication Size: 482KB)
|Description||Lake Whatcom is currently listed on the Washington State 303(d) list of waterbodies not attaining water quality criterion for dissolved oxygen. The State Department of Ecology’s Environmental Assessment Program is undertaking a comprehensive water quality sampling program for the lake throughout 2002 and 2003. Water quality samples will be analyzed for target nutrients (total dissolved phosphorus, orthophosphate, nitrate+nitrite as nitrogen, ammonia as nitrogen), as well as several diagnostic analytes that help to characterize geochemical controls on nutrient transport (dissolved oxygen, iron, manganese) or serve as source indicator parameters (total dissolved solids, chloride, dissolved organic carbon, boron, methylene blue active substances).|
