This Week Was Spent Collecting Holokuk Discharge Data And Water Quality Data
Kristy Wise, a recent graduate of Chuathbaluk, assisted with data collection on the Holokuk River this past week. Besides stream discharge on the lower portion of the Holokuk River and the two forks approximately thirty miles upstream of the Holokuk’s mouth, pH, dissolved oxygen, salinity, temperature, total dissolved solids, conductivity and specific conductance were collected on those sections of streams as well as several tributaries.
