Water quality in the Moose River : a pilot study, 1977-1978 / R.C. McCrea and J.C. Merriman. : En36-508/70E-PDF

"The Moose River Pilot Study was carried out near the mouth of the Moose River to examine the temporal, lateral and seasonal variability in the water chemistry and to design a baseline water quality sampling program to determine seasonal variation and future long-term trends. In all, eight surveys were conducted between March 1977 and March 1978. Water samples were collected from four locations across the Moose River and were analyzed for major ions, nutrients and trace metals. The results indicated that short-term variations in the water chemistry were not significant and that the Moose River was highly channelized. Many parameter concentrations (especially major ions) showed strong seasonal dependence. Furthermore, it was concluded that baseline water quality conditions would be evaluated better if future sampling were carried out on a biweekly (14-day intervals) basis in the midstream channels"--Abstract, page v.
