Water Quality Testing Program
KRWP's water monitoring program began in December 2003, testing numerous sites on the Kings River and its tributaries. This voluntary program operates under a strict set of scientific protocols to ensure the reliability of the data collected.
Water monitoring quality control measures are prescribed by a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) of 2005, in partnership with the Arkansas Water Resources Center (AWRC) at the University of Arkansas, under the direction of Dr. Marc Nelson. View QAPP. (207 Kb)
Quality measures were further strengthened with the addition of a YSI multi-probe field meter. This device tests 5 different parameters for water quality. KRWP's results compare closely to that of the AWRC's Lab.

Thirty volunteers of the Kings Armada scoured their favorite stretches of the Kings River and hauled in a bounty of trashy treasures during the June 2007 cleanup. See River Cleanup for more information on cleanup events from 2008-2012.
