Water Quality 2015 (1)

I’m very fortunate to be able to collect data. January is a cold month which consist of the Blue River and the WSC Wetland to be froze over. After a few nice, warmer days, only the Wetland had melted just enough to get a water sample.
As it looks, with the weather being nice, the oxygen and the water has gone down along with the nitrates and phosphates. This has mad the water more clear compared to August data. I do believe if I was to collect the water at the average or below temperature during January, I would have got different numbers.
