Monitoring and Assessment

The Wetlands Protection Program instituted a wetland water-monitoring program that focused on collecting Physical (location, size and informal boundaries) and Chemical (pH, salinity, DO, turbidity, conductivity) data on the Tribe’s wetlands. As a result of the collected information, the Program was able to develop a GPS-referenced map indicating the types and extent of wetlands that is now used in making initial site determinations for regulatory purposes. The collected water quality data provides a baseline from which the Program can track changes in quality and future progress.

Monitor Equipment
Some of our monitoring equipment.
 

20' Crestliner, 16' and 12' Trackers, and a 16' Canoe

A few boats from our fleet: 20' Crestliner, 16' and 12' Trackers, and a 16' Canoe.
 
To enhance our bioassessments, the Program is focusing on the biological aspects (inventory) including areas previously undeveloped. Bioassessments are based on the premise that the community of plants and animals living in a wetland will reflect the health of a wetland. Typically, the organisms that are intolerant to human disturbances die and organisms that are more tolerant to the disturbance make up a larger proportion of the individuals.
