Water quality measurements in the Lostine River, Oregon
Entry ID: MSU_6

Abstract: Water quality measurements were taken in the Lostine River (OR) in 1998 and 1999. Temperature, pH, total dissolved solids and conductivity values increased with decreasing river mile in both years, although there are several gaps in the data because the water meter was inoperable. None of the measured variables correlated significantly with the presence of T. tubifex, but a significant correlation (one sided p value less than 0.001) was found between conductivity and the prevalence of infection among sentinel fry.

Purpose: These data were collected as part of a study that aimed to establish the distribution and seasonal prevalence of M. cerebralis infection in the Lostine River.
