Monitoring has been carried out 5 times in this year, assessing the water quality pertaining to the wetland. 5 well sites, 1 tile drain site entering wetland and the outflow were monitored (4/5 times for well 4 and outflow).
Wells are purged prior to all sampling, to remove the water in them, and allowed to recharge ensuring a representative sample of “current water” is definitely obtained. A sample will then be collected from all sites at one time, some 24 hours later.
The results of this work show considerable Nitrogen concentration change between the water inflow and water outflow.
