Summary

Problem Dissolved oxygen (DO) is an important indicator of water quality that until recently has been cost-prohibitive to monitor extensively in both space and time. Continuous water-quality data, particularly in coastal environments with bidirectional tidal flow, is necessary for resource managers to understand the dynamic changes in water quality that occur tidally, daily, seasonally, and during aperiodic events. In the estuaries surrounding Long Island, such events may include wastewater treatment plant failures, harmful algal blooms, and extreme weather. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has extensive experience with continuous water-quality monitoring at fixed locations along the coast that provides valuable information which [...]

typeShort Project Description
valueDissolved Oxygen (DO) monitoring will provide more complete and accurate information to aid in the classification of water-quality impairments associated with Long Island estuaries as tabulated in the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) Waterbody Inventory and Priority Waterbodies List. This list aims to describe water quality and supported water uses, identify problems, and prioritize restorative measures.
