Water Quality Testing Oct 30th 2019

Sheila, Marcia and Helmut went testing on 30th Oct on a sunny, chilly day. We found that the creeks were running very clear and oxygen levels were good except at the site below Knopps Farm on Marsden Road. There oxygen was very low and the creek smelt strongly of cow manure. Weather has been dry and sunny for several days causing water levels to be low for this time of the year and water temperatures were below average levels for October. But we are testing at the end of the month so this is not of concern.We found no morts, but did spot one coho travelling upstream. See test results here:MPWS WQ 30 Oct 2019
