WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURE: Oct 1994 to current year. SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Oct 1994 to current year. SALINITY: Oct 1994 to current year. TURBIDITY: July 2016 to current year. pH: July 2016 to current year. CHLOROPHYLL-A: July 2016 to current year. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: July 2016 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: October 1994 to current year. SALINITY: October 2002 to current year. WATER TEMPERATURE: October 1994 to current year. PH: June 2016 to current year. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: June 2016 to current year. TURBIDITY: June 2016 to current year. CHLOROPHYLL-A: June 2016 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor recording specific conductance, water temperature, pH, chlorophyll A, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen.
REMARKS -

Turbidity data considered poor due to severe biofouling at the site location and extreme wind events causing significant turbulence.

Turbidity data that were previously reported in NTU were updated in October 2019 to reflect proper reporting units of FNU.
