Usage Considerations or Constraints Data represents monthly water quality grab samples during all or part of the open water season (May-October). Caution on the location of the station within the channel should be taken, as this may impact surface water quality differences across the sites (thalweg, left bank, right bank). Samples were collected using a depth-integrated water sampler, thus represent water quality across the water column.
