Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

REMARKS - As part of the Western Lake Erie Basin project, water-quality sampling began in March 2017 and water-quality concentrations and loads began being computed in March 2017. Automatic samples are collected with an ISCO auto sampler that is housed in the gage house. Monthly and rainfall-runoff event cross sectional samples are collected at this station. Sampling includes: Suspended-sediment (80154), Nitrogen, ammonia as N (00608), Nitrogen, ammonia + organic nitrogen (total, whole water, also known as total Kjeldahl nitrogen (TKN); 00625), Nitrogen, nitrite + nitrate (filtered water; 00631), Phosphorus, phosphate, ortho (also know as dissolved reactive phosphorus (DRP) or soluble reactive phosphorus; 00671), and Phosphorus (total, whole water; 00665).
