Measurements
In addition to the gaged stations described above, the SJRRP took measurements of water quality parameters at a variety of additional locations.

SJRRP measurements of total suspended solids, EC, pH, Turbidity, DO, bacteria, trace elements and pesticides at eight sites have been added to the Bureau of Reclamation Water Quality Database. Query All Program Information, Station Description field for “Interim Flows”.

Monitoring is organized according to the Interim Flow Water Quality Monitoring Plan.
