Water Year 2000   link to go to details for water year 2001

Water year 2000 was the second year of the low intensity phase (LIP) data collection for the UCOL. The primary objectives for this year were:

  1. Produce the UCOL summary report.
  2. Complete NAWQA National Synthesis data requests.
  3. Continue LIP surface water sampling.   button for link to map of LIP sites
  4. Continue work on other study unit reports.
  5. Begin the design of the data / information archive.

Water Year 1999

Water year 1999 was the first year of the low intensity phase (LIP) data collection for the UCOL. The UCOL NAWQA team goals for 1999 were to comprehensively evaluate the data that was collected during 1996 through 1998. The primary objectives and priorities to be accomplished by UCOL NAWQA during water year 1999 were:

  1. Complete high priority reports from the existing reports plan.
  2. Begin LIP surface water sampling.
  3. Document UCOL data collected during the High Intensity Phase.
  4. Enter selected well characteristics into GWSI and complete field verification of land use and land cover characterization around wells in land use study networks.
  5. Complete documentation and aggregation of remaining ancillary information for basic fixed sites and wells.

Water Years 1996-1998

Water years 1996-1998 defined the high intensity data collection period for the UCOL. Incorporating NAWQA guidelines, UCOL environmental settings, and local, state, and regional interests; the objectives of the high intensity data collection were to:

  1. Define the occurrence and distribution of water quality conditions.
  2. Associate factors such as mining, geology, agriculture, and urbanization with water-quality conditions.
