Inorganic Chemistry of Water and Bed Sediment in Selected Tributaries of the South Umpqua River, Oregon, 1998
Entry ID: WRIR_99_4196

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Ten sites on small South Umpqua River tributaries were sampled for inorganic
constituents in water and streambed sediment. In aqueous samples, high
concentrations (concentrations exceeding U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
criterion continuous concentration for the protection of aquatic life) of zinc,
copper, and cadmium were detected in Middle Creek at Silver Butte, and the
concentration of ... View entire text

Quality Quality-control (QC) data were collected to evaluate techniques used to
collect, process, and analyze water samples. QC data were collected as part of
project-level (as opposed to laboratory-level) quality-assurance efforts. The
NWQL internal quality-assurance program is described by Pritt and Raese (1995).
ACSGL internal quality assurance is described by Arbogast (1966) and Briggs
and Meier (1999).

The data set contains results of a 1998 reconnaissance investigation of
inorganic chemical characteristics of water and streambed sediment. Ten sites
on small streams draining areas containing natural ore deposits and/or mining
sites were sampled.
