Various points along the Pelican River and Campbell Creek are sampled on a bi-weekly basis.  Total phosphorus and orthophosphates are measured in all samples.  Campbell Creek samples are also analyzed for total suspended solids.   Water level gages are located at the sampling points and these values are also taken bi-weekly. 

After Storm events, some major points along the Pelican River and Campbell Creek are sampled.  This is done in order to measure the amount of sediments and phosphates brought by the rain from farm fields, ditches, ect.
