As of October 7th 2016, the first water tests were initialized and completed from the 4 water test sites, giving us the update on how the efforts towards a cleaner watershed have been going. The results were interesting to say the least...
Now of course, what does this all mean?
Well first, the measurements are all within their rated limits, which is first off nice to see. However, under a stricter eye there is definitely parts missing here that we should look over. Before this, the good stuff.
pH: Balance is relatively stable, if a little acidic.
Bacterium: All the exactly same, of course as a estimate.
Dissolved Oxygen: Very good levels here, good for fish who need lots of oxygen in the rivers
And for that bad...
Nitrite: In the Flood Channel of Escondido, the Nitrite levels are still 8 PPM under the rated limit, however it is much higher than the other areas we tested. What's even more worrying is that this is just in one area, so the change must be coming from something, right?
