Water Quality Monitoring of Post Fire Areas
Studies Conducted: on 2 fires; Holy 2018 Lake Elsinore Riverside and Orange Co. and the Tenaja Fire 2019 outside of S. Riverside Co.
Abstract: View it here.
How does post-fire runoff affect contaminant flux?
• Contaminant flux presentation will compare the relative mass contributions of contaminants from the burned catchments vs. the unburned natural areas.
• Understanding the effects of wildfires on contaminant flux provides information that can inform management actions, including strategies used to comply with water quality regulations.
Recommendations for Post-fire Monitoring Studies
• Study Design and Monitoring Logistics
• Safety Considerations
