Sunny day, light breeze. No rain the past 48 hrs. Water level is very low and stagnant. Faint smell of rotten eggs present and stronger with the breeze. Birds in the surrounding trees. Dump employee asked what we were doing from the other side of the fence near the dump. Mentioned that there was more water further up the trail if we wanted to take tests there instead. He also said that they do their own water sampling tests 3 times per year and that he wasn't worried about the results we would get.
