Project 1: Technical input has been provided at two advisory team meetings attended this quarter.

Project 2: Surface Water Monitoring for Indicator Bacteria in High-use Sites of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area (poster) was presented at the Lake Mead Science Symposium; a journal article is in preparation.

Project 3: A draft document titled “Interagency Monitoring Action Plan (I-MAP): Quagga Mussels in Lakes Mead and Mohave” has been subdivided into four major sections and corresponding sub-groups have been formed to provide review and input. Six oral presentations related to quagga mussels were presented at the Lake Mead Science Symposium. Two journal articles are in preparation.

Project 4: A poster presentation summarizing the data-mining and literature database was presented at the Lake Mead Science Symposium.

Project 5: The Lake Mead Science Symposium was delivered at the UNLV Student Union 01/13-15/2009. The symposium included a plenary session with three keynote addresses and four special remarks by water-related agency leadership and six concurrent sessions with 44 talks and 13 posters. Approximately 150 individuals attended. Excellent feedback was received.

Project 6: Interagency “Water 2025” Team meetings continue to be coordinated and built for eventual input into the ecological monitoring plan for Lakes Mead and Mohave. Day 3 of the symposium (project 5) launched work on the ecological monitoring plan.
