Lane Community College will be embarking on a comprehensive water quality study for Russel Creek Watershed. It owns property near the headwaters of the creek and it passes through sensitive wetlands that LCC also owns. We will monitor water quality monthly upstream and downstream from the campus as instruments are acquired. Russel Creek is an ephemeral stream. First measurements 12-07-12 at the upstream sampling site near the LCC Learning Garden (our SWS-06 site).
