WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURE: Jul 2005 to Jun 2010, November 2010 to present. SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Jul 2005 to Jun 2010, Nov 2010 to present. pH: Jul 2005 to Nov 2008, Oct 2012 to Dec 2013. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Jul 2005 to Nov 2008, Oct 2012 to Dec 2013. TURBIDITY: Jul 2005 to Nov 2008, Oct 2012 to present.
REMARKS -

Interruptions or periods of missing record may be due to instrument failure, ice conditions, no flow conditions, or data corrections exceeding allowable criteria, which were deleted.

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: For Water Year 2017, record is rated excellent except for the following periods: Dec. 31-Jan. 10, Feb. 11-24, Apr. 8-10, May 27-31, Jul. 6-7, Aug. 22-23, Sept. 9-30, rated good; Apr. 30 - May 1, Aug. 24, rated fair; Oct. 1-11, Aug. 25, rated poor.

WATER TEMPERATURE: For Water Year 2017, record is rated excellent.

TURBIDITY: For Water Year 2017, record is rated excellent except for the following periods: Apr. 19-23, rated good; May 2-4, rated fair, Nov. 17 - Jan. 10, Apr. 3, 24, May 5-31, rated poor.

As of August 25, 2015, turbidity data collected using YSI EXO2 sensors (previously collected using YSI 6136 6-series sensors). Note that extreme values recorded using YSI EXO2 sensors may exceed those previously recorded using YSI 6136 sensors. Manufacturer specifications of range and accuracy for both sensor models are as follows: YSI 6136: 0 to 1000 FNU, ±2% of the reading or 0.3 NTU (whichever is greater). YSI EXO2: 0 to 999 FNU: 0.3 FNU or ±2% of reading (whichever is greater); 1000 to 4000 FNU: ±5% of reading.
