Phosphate result of .14 was achieved using old reagent (1/19). This is high for this site, so it was done again with new reagent and solution as old solution had run out. A result of .61 was achieved.  We had no time to do a third test today, but I will do a Badger Ck sample with the new reagent and solution to see if a high result is obtained.

RA: removed reactive phosphate of 0.14mg/L from results, will add back if issue is confirmed
