INSTRUMENTATION - Multiparameter water-quality monitor.
REMARKS - Interruptions in record are due to ice conditions or malfunction of the recording instrument or sensors. Instruments used to measure turbidity conform to ISO 7027 standards and were made using Yellow Springs Instrument (YSI) 6026 and 6136 sensors. As of Jan. 2017, turbidity is being measured by an EXO sensor.
