The details of this Sample Design, including all the parameters used to generate it, are included below. Sample designs must belong to a Study Design.


Data collection is part of the Action Effectiveness Monitoring instigated by BPA. A large scale habitat restoration project is planned on Mill Creek, transitioning a relict mill pond location back to a more functional river system. Two sites will be surveyed following BPA's "Protocol for Monitoring the Effectiveness of Off-Channel Habitat / Floodplain Enhancement Projects." One site will be located within the project area while the other will be located outside the scope of work and will serve as a control.

AOI Notes


Below is a list of User Samples from which this design is drawing sites.

Panel designs can help address sampling objectives by increasing the total number of samples at a lower overall cost. A common panel structure involves one or more panels with a high revisit frequency (e.g. an “Annual” panel), and other panels with a lower revisit frequency (e.g. a three year “Rotating” panel).
