Substrate Sample Collection

Throughout the restoration we have collected preliminary and post grab samples & core samples to reflect the results of the Sand Wand™ restoration. In order to help us determine and report the size and range of material present – the samples are dried, sieved, weighed and evaluated.

Core Samples being collected by a member of our Stream Team, as well as an intern, Cora Lewis.
