Description
Summary:A baseline water quality study was started in 2012 and continued through the end of 2014 to document historical water quality in order to assess the effects of the proposed Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project on water quality in the Susitna River basin. This report is a comprehensive discussion of the results of the study from the study's beginning through the end of 2014. With this report, Alaska Energy Authority has completed the field work, data collection and analysis, and reporting for this study. The study area includes the Susitna River starting at river mile 19.9 (for water temperature monitoring) and river mile 29.9 (for other water quality monitoring) to river mile 235.2 (Oshetna River) and selected tributaries within the proposed transmission lines and access corridors. Historic data was compared to new data collected for this study. The study included meteorological data collection; physical, chemical, and bacterial conditions of surface water; metals concentrations in sediment and fish tissues; and a pilot Thermal Infrared Remote (TIR) sensing effort to obtain data to map the groundwater discharge and possible extent of thermal refugia.
