Description

WET Center Project: Regional Water Quality Research: Effects of the Wallow Fire on Water Quality Regional Water Quality Research: Effects of the Wallow Fire on Water Quality Massive forest fires in Arizona in 2002 impacted organic matter levels in the Salt River reservoirs for several years. The recent Wallow Fires may have the same impact. Research is proposed that includes field sample collection, analysis of organic matter in the samples, and development of a predictive model capable of predicting organic matter in the terminal reservoir (Saguaro Lake) in water released into the SRP canal system. This project will involve participation of SRP for sample collection and other local cities for data analysis. Additionally, we will track the water quality from Saguaro Lake down through the canal system to Phoenix water treatment plants on a monthly basis.
