Pecos River Ecosystem Monitoring Project
Charles R. Hart, Alyson McDonald
The Pecos River Ecosystem Project is attempting to minimize the negative impacts of saltcedar on the river ecosystem, and improve the efficiency of water delivery and stream flow. The project is designed to decrease the number of saltcedar with aerial application of herbicide along the banks of the river. The project is concerned with the effect of saltcedar on both quality and quantity of the water of the Pecos River as a result of mortality of the plant from along the banks. Specifically, the study is mainly interested in water delivery efficiency and salinity of the river.
