PERIOD OF RECORD - Mar. 1960 to current year. PERIOD OF RECORD, Water-Quality.-- CHEMICAL DATA: Dec. 1963, Feb. 1981 to Aug. 1982, Feb. 1990 to Dec. 1996, June 1998. BIOCHEMICAL DATA: Dec. 1963, Feb. 1981 to Aug. 1982, Feb. 1990 to Dec. 1996, June 1998. BIOLOGICAL DATA: Dec. 1996, June 1998. PESTICIDE DATA: Dec. 1996, June 1998. RADIOCHEMICAL DATA: Feb. to May 1981, Dec. 1996. SEDIMENT DATA: Dec. 1996, June 1998.
