Second of two special samples to follow-up the low DO readings in "first-flush" stormwater flows on 29/12/2016.

In this case the stormwater flow is high but relatively steady after 23mm of rain in the last 6 hours.

Based on this result there does not appear to be a relationship between high turbidity and low DO.
