Automated water samplers are used to document nutrient loading to the system following storm events. These autosamplers begin monitoring water quality based on the occurrence of a storm event, and collect water samples every four hours. These samples are analyzed WildPine Ecological Laboratory for the following water quality parameters: turbidity, color, ortho-P, total phosphorus, total suspended solids, alkalinity, total kjeldahl nitrogen, ammonia and nitrate/nitrite.
These reports summarize the short-term effects of rainfall events and associated increased discharge on water quality into Loxahatchee River. The results illustrate how stormwater runoff affects water quality differently among locations in the Loxahatchee watershed.
