Overview

This update is a summary of activities since the previous status report of March 2016 on the implementation of the Refuge's Enhanced Water Quality Monitoring and Modeling Program. A project overview, and other detailed information about the program can be found at: http://sofia.usgs.gov/lox_monitor_model/. The primary objective of this overall program (Brandt et al. 2004) focuses on providing information for use in ecological management of the Refuge (e.g., USFWS 2007a, b; USFWS 2009; USFWS 2010a, b; USFWS 2012a; USFWS 2012b; USFWS 2013, USFWS 2014; USFWS 2015).

The Refuge's monitoring component of this program also addresses one of the Consent Decree Principals recommendations (17 December 2003):

B. Enhancing Monitoring of the Refuge
Design and implement an enhanced monitoring program to improve spatial and temporal understanding of factors related to phosphorus dynamics.
