Water-Year Summary for Site 01570500
ON EASTERN BANK OF CITY ISLAND: Records for 2014 water year have water temperature, pH, and dissolved oxygen records rated good. Specific conductance records rated fair.
IN EASTERN CHANNEL AT WALNUT STREET BRIDGE: Records for water year 2014 have water temperature rated excellent, specific conductance, pH, and dissolved oxygen records rated good, except specific conductance from July 2 through Aug 27, which is rated fair. Records for water year 2015 have water temperature rated excellent and pH and DO rated good. Specific conductance is rated good except for Aug 12 - Sept 16 which is rated fair, and May 6 - Aug 11 and Sept 17 - 30, which is rated poor. Records for water year 2016 have water temperature and specific conductance is rated poor. Records for water year 2017 have water temperature rated as good and specific conductance rated as poor. Records for water year 2018 have water temperature rated as fair and specific conductance rated as fair. Beginning in water year 2019, water quality records are not rated as "excellent", "good", "fair", or "poor". Water-quality parameters at this station can vary substantially at different locations in the river. Therefore, water-quality data displayed here characterizes conditions only at the location where water-quality equipment is deployed.
As of October 2013, results from discrete water quality samples collected at this site are available through the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System web interface on the "Water Quality for the Nation" webpage. Analyses for pH, water temperature, specific conductance, and dissolved oxygen were performed on site. Inorganic sample analyses were performed at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection laboratory in Harrisburg, PA. Occasionally, values for filtered parameters may exceed values for the corresponding unfiltered parameter. These results are within the limits of analytical precision and methods.
