Area of Operations: Ashumet Pond, Falmouth, Massachusetts, United States, North America

Dates: June 02, 2004 to June 03, 2004

Objectives: Install drive point well heads and diffusion gradient samplers.

Type of Activity: Sampling
install well heads/diffusion samplers into sediments

Information to be derived: Samples and Chemical Analysis

Summary: Diver installation of seepage diffusion gradient samplers into the lake floor sediments and mini-drive point wells (with in situ syringe sampling of subsurface waters) and drive point well capping and development. Looking for phosphorous seepage from MMR sewage treatment beds located up gradient from the lake. Strong indication of phosphorous concentration 20 ft. from shore.
