I have found the data FOSR collects and presents on the internet a valuable resource when investigating potential restoration projects and determining baseline water quality conditions for streams that overlap TU’s priorities and FOSR’s monitoring.
....FOSR water quality data....allows me to focus on measuring stream habitat and fish communities.
....FOSR’s water quality monitoring program....is essential for tracking progress towards cleaning up the river. I look forward to working with the FOSR on future projects.
