Project Description

The work for this task involves collecting water samples at the 16 lotic systems (streams and rivers) identified in the study plan and sampling developed and implemented during Tasks 1-5 of this project and analyzing the samples for silver content. The intent of this Task is to collect the samples during the spring freshet. For this work, the Consultant shall spend up to one week with IPC personnel to collect the samples, plus train IPC on the proper procedures to collect the water and sediment samples. The initial field work and training will begin on May 23, 2011 and end on May 27, 2011, but will depend on the timing of the spring freshet. During this time, the Consultant and IPC personnel will sample as many locations as possible. IPC will collect samples at any remaining locations that are not visited during that week. IPC will provide transportation, meals and lodging during the field sampling work and IPC will reimburse the Consultant for travel, per diem and lodging to and from Boise as stated in the Schedule of Rates, Exhibit A to the MTS/CA. The sampling for water will be completed per the procedures outlined in the Baseline Silver Sampling Plan prepared as part of Tasks 1-5 of this project.
