The US Forest Services needs a sustainable method of measuring the water quality of El Yunque National Forest's wild and scenic rivers. Our project developed a monitoring plan for these rivers that is both accurate and cost efficient. Based upon the opinions of water quality experts and our own on-site analysis, our final plan includes seven sampling sites on three rivers. We recommend the use of a multi-parameter probe to reliably collect water measurements and calculated one year of monitoring will cost approximately $4,000.
