Hydrology And Water Quality Monitoring Of The Mora River At Rio Mora National Wildlife Refuge

Poster: To clearly understand the current status of the Mora River at Wind River Ranch a comprehensive water quantity and quality long-term monitoring study is being conducted. The goal of this project is to monitor several hydrology and water quality parameters to determine long-term changes and/or trends in the hydrology and quality of the Mora River at the Rio Mora National Wildlife Refuge. These parameters will be integrated into a question driven long-term monitoring project that will allow us to investigate specific issues as they are related to climate change and the activities occurring at the Rio Mora Refuge and within the Mora River Watershed. Water quality sondes have been deployed at two sites and have been recording the physiochemical parameters continuously since July 2013. In addition water samples have been collected twice monthly at these sites for nutrient concentration determination. Preliminary data indicates that daily and seasonal fluctuations exist for all parameters measured.
