Faculty and students from the University of the Fraser Valley have been conducting times series sampling of water geochemistry of the Fraser River at Fort Langley and six Fraser Valley tributaries as a member of the Global Rivers Observatory (GRO, www.globalrivers.org) coordinated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Woods Hole Research Center. The Clayburn-Stoney-Willband watershed has become the focus of sampling of water chemistry data including the collection of samples for the analysis of bacteria concentrations. The creeks of this watershed flow through urban, suburban, forested, industrial and agricultural lands. Water chemistry and data has been collected weekly since 2016. We have are documenting the drivers behind the seasonal changes that are occurring on these watersheds and will assist in protecting this watershed for returning Coho and Chum salmon.
