Summary
Abstract: Water quality monitoring is conducted at 26 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERR)
at four locations within or adjacent to the reserve. The following parameters are collected at
least every 30 minutes: water temperature, specific conductivity, salinity, percent saturation,
dissolved oxygen concentration, water depth, pH and turbidity. All water quality data loggers
will be deployed from a known depth from the bottom at each site.

Purpose: Research objectives. The Taskinas Creek watershed is representative of an inner coastal plain rural watershed within
the southern Chesapeake Bay system. This watershed is dominated by forested and agricultural
land uses with an increasing urban land use component. The drainage basin is suited for
investigating hydrologic and nonpoint source water ... View entire text
