PERIOD OF RECORD - September 2, 2015 - Current
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD -

WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum recorded: 31.4 C,  August 11, 2016; minimum recorded, 0.0  C, January 18 and 19, 2016, and 0.0 C, January 19, 2018*.

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum recorded, 550 microsiemens/cm, September 24, 2016; minimum recorded, 185 microsiemens/cm, July 3, 2016.

pH: Maximum recorded, 8.9 units, October 20, 2015; minimum recorded, 6.7 units June 25-26, 2016.

DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum recorded, 16.2 mg/L, January 01, 2018*; minimum recorded, 2.2 mg/L, September 11 ,2016

TURBIDITY: Maximum recorded, 3770 FNU, September 11, 2015; minimum recorded, 0.1 FNU, July 26, 2016 and numerous other cases after that date

NITRATE: Maximum recorded, 1.62 mg/L, September 12, 2015; minimum recorded, 0.04 mg/L, December 23, 2017.  At this site it is common for nitrate values to spike.  The maximum for this POR is a spike and was retained because there was no good cause to delete this reading and not the rest of the spikes across the POR.

* Multiple occurrences of the same extreme in selected dataset. First occurrence listed.
