Station Notes
gage
This station has two turbidity sensors that use different methods for measuring turbidity. Turbidity values from these sensors are not directly comparable and it is common for the sensors to produce different readings. Due to extreme sediment conditions in the Elwha River, reported DTS-12 values above 1,000 FNU may be subject to reduced accuracy. For turbidity conditions greater than 1,000 FNU, refer to available data from the Analite sensor.


gage
On January 27, 2017, Turbidity, water, unfiltered, monochrome near infra-red LED light source, 780-900 nm, detection angle 0-45 degrees to incident light (backscatter), FBU, [ANA] records were revised for Sept. 18, 2013 to Sept. 30, 2014. (Message posted January 30, 2017)

Turbidity, stage data collection, and gaging station photos has been discontinued starting October 1, 2019 due to a lack of funding. If you have questions, please contact the Western Washington Field Office Chief at gs-w-wa_wwfoc@usgs.gov.
