The monitoring program Ecosystem monitoring in freshwaters (ECOFRESH (= ØKOFERSK)) is a continuation of the three former programs ‘Ecosystem monitoring in freshwaters’ part I, II and III. The program covers both surveillance monitoring in reference lakes in accordance with the Water Framework Directive, and chemical and biological monitoring in a fixed network of acid sensitive lakes. The program is now divided into 6 subprograms, 5 of them geographically divided programs: ØKOFERSK Nord (=North), ØKOFERSK Midt (=Mid), ØKOFERSK Vest (=West), ØKOFERSK Sør (=South) and ØKOFERSK Øst (=East), in addition to a subprogram for monitoring of chemical effects of acidification: ØKOFERSK Sur (=acid).
Vassdragsforbundet would like to find a professionally capable cooperation partner within initiative orientated monitoring of lakes, rivers and streams. The rivers flowing into Mjøsa and Mjøsa itself have been monitored for more than 40 years. The monitoring programme for the water area Mjøsa has been adjusted in accordance with the Water Regulations and in accordance with the environment authorities. The environmental standard shall be classified in accordance with Guidelines 02:2013 — revised 2015 — Classification of the environmental condition of the water.
The competition includes these sub-areas together:
1. Monitoring Stor-Mjøsa (main station Skreia);
2. Monitoring the water quality at 3 other stations in Mjøsa, Brøttum, Kise and Furnesfjorden, as well as animal plankton in Furnesfjorden;
3. Monitoring chemical and hygienic/bacteriological conditions in Mjøsa's 6 largest feed rivers and the outflow river Vorma, as well as biological surveys in the 11-12 largest feed rivers and Vorma on a rolling programme;
4. Reporting, including various presentations and entering all data into the database Vannmiljø.
The monitoring Ecosystem Monitoring in freshwater (ØKOFERSK) is a continuation of the three programs Ecosystem Monitoring in fresh water part I, II and III. The program covers both monitoring of reference lakes acc. water regulation, and chemical and biological monitoring of acidification effects in a fixed network of acid sensitive lakes. The program is now divided into six sub-programs, 5 geographically delineated subprograms: ØKOFERSK North, ØKOFERSK Central ØKOFERSK West, ØKOFERSK South and ØKOFERSK East, as well as a separate sub-program for the chemical acidification monitoring: ØKOFERSK Sur.
Water Resources Association wants to find a highly skilled partner in initiatives aimed monitoring of lakes, rivers and streams. The monitoring of Mjøsa and tributaries have been going for over 40 years. The monitoring program for Water Area Mjøsa is adjusted in accordance with the Water Regulations and in consultation with the environmental authorities. State of the environment shall be classified by Supervisor 02: 2013 - revised in 2015 - Classification of environmental state in water.
The competition consists of these subareas collected:
1. Monitoring of Greater Mjøsa (main station Skreia)
2. Monitoring of water quality at three other stations in the lake, specifically Brøttum, Kise and Furnes Fjord and zooplankton in Furnes Fjord
3. Monitoring of chemical and hygienic / bacteriological conditions in Mjøsas six largest Tributary rivers and outlet river Vorma and biological surveys in the 11 to 12 largest tributaries and Vorma for a rolling program
4. Reporting, including various presentations and posting of all data in the database Aquatic
