Document Description
The Lindsey Slough Monitoring Station will be measuring flow and velocity, turbidity, conductivity, water temperature, and stage. The station is located approximately 250 ft. downstream of the Hastings Island Bridge. The monitoring station will also serve as the downstream boundary condition to a Hydrodynamic Model that the Solano County Water Agency (SCWA) is working on. Currently, SCWA is trying to better understand the flow dynamics in Barker Slough, Calhoun Cut, and Lindsey Slough so that water quality can be improved at the Barker Slough Pumping Plant. The Barker Slough Pumping Plant experiences some of the poorest water quality out of the entire State Water Project. Barker Slough has high levels of Organic Carbon, increasing the levels of Trihalomethanes (THMs) in treated source water, which are known to be carcinogenic. The Agency hopes to better understand how water moves through the various sloughs and upland tributaries, so that water quality can be improved for both Napa and Solano Counties.
