Description: Water quality was investigated in the vicinity of Cuesta Ridge Vineyard, San Luis Obispo County, where drainages carry water from chaparral, oak woodland, and a new vineyard. Three drainages were instrumented with gauges above and below the vineyard for stage height and turbidity to assess the effectiveness of water quality protection measures at the Cuesta Ridge Vineyard. Water samples were taken during storm events and analyzed for pH, EC, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment concentrations. Erratic flow conditions may have made it difficult to identify differences above and below the vineyard. Water quality was good at all sites and data collected serves as baseline information for future study. Landform, geology, soil type, proximity to wetlands, and land use practices in the surrounding areas should be investigated to consider possible relationships with turbidity and nutrient concentrations.

Keywords: buffers, rainfall, rangelands, turbidity, water quality
