Project Synopsis

This project aims to monitor sediment and nutrients at the Arkansas Highway 45 bridge on the White River just above Beaver Lake. This is important in order to monitor water quality, tailor BMPs to the specific issues, and determine future Total Maximum Daily Loads. Reports will be compiled annually showing monitoring results and water quality data. The project partner is the University of Arkansas Geosciences Department. This project is ongoing.
