Water Quality Testing

A group of Preserve Calavera volunteers have been working for a number of years collecting data evaluating the “health” of Buena Vista Creek.  We sample the creek near the Oceanside DMV, within the Buena Vista Creel Ecological Reserve (temporally suspended) and near the driving range on Haymar in Carlsbad.  Nutrients, dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity along with bacteria help us assess the state of this watershed.  Collected data can be viewed at the San Diego Coastkeeper website.

Most recently, a team for Agua Hedionda Creek has been created and trained by our umbrella group, San Diego Coastkeeper.  If you are interested in joining this team, please contact mav@preservecalavera.org.
