WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURE: October 2011 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water temperature sensor interfaced with a data collection platform with 15-minute recording interval.

Cross-sectional water quality data is available upon request. Records for water temperature in water year 2015 are fair. Records for water year 2016 are rated good. Records for water year 2017 are rated good. Records for water year 2018 are rated good.
