6 Water Quality Sampling Grab samples every two weeks Auto-sampler samples all storm events > trigger level Flow-weighted composite samples (except White) SO 4, Cl -, NH 4, NO 3/ NO 2, T-N, T-P, sPO 4, and TSS Concentrations assigned to all times USGS discharge for all times Loads calculated by multiplying and summing for the year Sondes reading turbidity, conductivity and temp (except Kings River)
