Water Quality & Aquatic Studies

TES has extensive experience with water quality and aquatic habitat assessments in rivers, streams, and ponds.  TES uses sampling devices (e.g. dissolved oxygen, conductivity, and pH meters) to determine water quality.  Assessment of water quality in streams is often measured by the presence of aquatic insects or macroinvertebrates.  TES uses the Rapid Biological Assessments of Streams protocol, developed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.  We perform fisheries surveys using electrofishing and various types of nets in small streams, ponds, rivers, and lakes.  TES has also performed aquatic vegetation surveys for submerged aquatic vegetation and New York State listed rare plants.
