We are collecting long-term multiparametric water-quality data in the Hans Groot Kill on the campus of Union College. Data were collected weekly from 9/14/18 to 11/2/18 at five sites along the stream, Site 1 being farthest upstream and Site 5 farthest downstream. The Hans Groot Kill is exposed at the surface for <1.2 km; it emerges from a culvert at its upstream end east of campus, passes through a culvert under a parking lot on campus, and enters a final culvert at the downstream end that carries it to the Mohawk River. Upper reaches of the stream are incised (Sites 1-3), while lower reaches are bordered by floodplain (Sites 4 and 5). Pipes exit the channel walls along the incised sections. A handheld YSI Professional Plus meter was used to determine temperature (°C), air pressure (mmHg), dissolved oxygen percent (%) and concentration (mg/l), specific conductance (SC; µS/cm), conductivity (µS/cm), total dissolved solids (TDS; mg/l), salinity (ppt), and pH (pH units). Temperature increased downstream, as did salinity. Over time, temperature decreased while dissolved oxygen concentration (mg/l) increased. SC, conductivity, and TDS were relatively high but varied throughout the sampling period, generally falling after rain events. SC and conductivity typically increased going downstream. TDS typically increased downstream with a few exceptions. On 10/9/18, we sampled the Hans Groot Kill for Enterococci bacteria at six locations, three on campus and three east of campus. Samples were analyzed by Watershed Assessment Associates in Schenectady, NY. All six samples were positive for Enterococci bacteria, which live in the guts of warm-blooded animals, including humans, and thus can be used as indicators of contamination by fecal waste. The lowest most probable number (MPN) was detected in the sample collected farthest downstream on campus. The highest concentrations were found in the two samples collected farthest upstream and off campus. The Hans Groot Kill shows indications of being impaired based on the YSI data, including relatively high SC and conductivity. In addition, the Enterococci data provide strong evidence for contamination by sewage. Further multiparametric monitoring and additional rounds of bacterial testing are clearly warranted.
