Water Board plans more tests

The non-conclusive preliminary findings from a water quality testing project in the Smith River floodplain had people lined up at Tuesday’s County Board of Supervisors meeting to say they didn’t believe enough was being done to assess the health of the lower river and the humans who live nearby.

Gearing up for an agricultural discharge permitting program for lily bulb growers, the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board found that four out of the 12 water samples taken from lower river tributaries in 2013 proved toxic to a species of water flea, significantly lowering its rate of reproduction. The water flea is commonly used as an indicator of water quality. Three of these were taken downstream from lily fields, including one, taken from lower Rowdy Creek, that resulted in early death for the flea.
