INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor and data-collection platform.
REMARKS - Extremes for current year and extremes for period of daily record are based on recorded values and may have been exceeded during periods of no record. July 2000 to September 2002, December 2007 to September 2008; water temperature, specific conductance, and dissolved oxygen, published as daily mean. October 2008 to September 2014; water temperature, specific conductance and dissolved oxygen published as instantaneous maximum and minimum. October 2014 to current year; water temperature, specific conductance, and dissolved oxygen, published as instantaneous maximum and minimum, and daily mean. Period of record extremes updated to reflect instantaneous maximum and minimum.
