Water Monitoring - How To

Where to sample:

Try to get a sample from the main flow of water and not the edges or where water is held in pools, where there is likely to be more variation from the main body of the river. Unless there is a specific reason to sample water from a different location, the running water in the centre of the river gives the best overall sample.

It is important not to disturb the area that you are going to sample. Stand downstream of where you will take the sample.
