Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: USGS divers assisted with the installation and processing of subsurface seepage meters, Henry drive point mini-piezometers, and drive point piezometers well processing. Water samples were collected in all cases for the analysis of relative concentrations of phosphorous. The water samples were analyzed by WRD scientists on-site using photometer instrumentation.
