REMARKS - Numerical uncertainty is not currently computed for time-series water-quality records but qualitative ratings are provided based on professional judgment.
  • Water Year 2014: Records good except for period May 20 to Aug. 14, records fair due to lower quality data relative to independent sensor checks.
  • Water Year 2015: Records good.
