Data collection info Members of the Wolverton Creek Water Users collected data that contributed to this report. The program relies on manual reading of instream flow gauges, calibration of gauges by readings taken with a Price Current meter (RIC standard procedures). Velocity readings are taken at intervals of 6 to 12 inches across the stream and a stage discharge curve is developed. Samples are tested for turbidity and conductivity. If turbidity is greater than 1NTU, total suspended solids are performed on that sample. In late summer, 5 samples are collected by an employee of Passmore Laboratory Ltd and tested for Thermotolerant Coliforms and E.coli as recommended in Provincial Guidelines for evaluating drinking water.
