Expanded Maumee Tributary Monitoring to Measure Success of Agricultural Conservation Actions
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-76. Ohio EPA will fund enhanced tributary monitoring at 12 sites by 1) installing USGS continuous discharge flow monitors within four targeted watersheds (Blanchard River Watershed, Swan Creek Watershed, Auglaize River Watershed and Lower Sandusky River and direct Lake Erie tributaries); and 2) installing USGS gaging stations on two Lake Erie tributaries. The enhanced monitoring in the targeted watersheds will provide water quality information necessary to track water quality improvements resulting from conservation actions. Monthly water samples for nutrients will be collected at each site and correlated with flow data to determine nutrient loading; such monthly sampling will allow for changes in nutrient loading to be monitored over time. In addition, adding a USGS gauging station on both the Little Auglaize (at confluence of the Auglaize) as well as Swan Creek (at the western Toledo City limits) would augment the seven USGS gages currently in the Maumee basin used to calculate phosphorus loading to Lake Erie.
