Beaver Creek and Austin Creek were sampled intensively on November 20, 2004 to measure temperature, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, total suspended solids, and fecal coliforms. The objective was to assess the amount of variability that can be expected for water quality measurements collected from these creeks at different times during the day and in different locations within the Austin Creek and Beaver Creek watersheds.
