PERIOD OF RECORD - Apr. 1993 to Aug. 2004
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Jan. 2002 to Aug. 2004, discontinued. WATER TEMPERATURE: Jan. 2002 to Aug. 2004, discontinued.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor Jan. 2002 to Aug. 2004, hourly, discontinued.
REMARKS - In Apr. 1993, station was incorporated into the National Water-Quality Assessment Program (NAWQA) with goals to describe the status and trends of water-quality conditions for a large, diverse, and geographically distributed part of the Nation's ground- and surface-water resources. In Jan. 1997 an automatic sampler was re-installed and used to collect water-quality data as part of the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) monitoring network. Quality-assurance samples are defined in the introductory text section titled "Water Quality-Control Data." Surrogate constituent values (parameters 90640, 99958, 99959, 99994, and 99995) are recovery percentages for the indicated compounds. These compounds are added to the sample to determine the relative recovery of other organic compounds that are detected using the same analytical method.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum recorded, 9,510 microsiemens, cm at 25°C, May 14, 2002; minimum recorded, 803 microsiemens, cm at 25°C, Apr. 3, 2004. WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum recorded, 36.0°C Jul. 12, 2002; minimum recorded, 4.0°C, Jan. 31, 2002.
