Traisen River Monitoring - quantifying the effects of a human extreme event on the Traisen River

Within the TRAISEN-FREQUENCY Project, we have established two main sampling sites along the Traisen River at St. Pölten. One site is located just above the festival-area, whereas the second site is located below. Comparisons of the two sites will then allow to evaluate the effects of the Festival on water Quality and stream ecosystem functioning in the Traisen River.

Both sites are or will shortly be equipped with automated oxygen sensors and an S:::can Spectrolyser probes. The sites are battery powered.
