Streamers Bulletin June 2004

We’ve had two stream water testing sessions so far in 2004.  On January 17, a rare sunny
winter day, 11 volunteers tested water at 12 sites on McAleer and Lyon Creeks and their
tributaries in LFP.  On April 17, 15 testers revisited those same sites.  As the charts on the
reverse side show, the results of the observations and tests we did – temperature,
turbidity (cloudiness), pH (acidity), and dissolved oxygen – are generally very good.

Of the 12 locations, 9 are regular sites that have been tested many times in the past.  One
is a new site on 35th Avenue north of Ballinger Way, intended to help us gather data on
the main branch of Lyon Creek.  Two locations are temporary sites that StreamKeepers is
monitoring at the request of the LFP Stewardship Foundation, in conjunction with stream
restoration projects.
