    WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
    PERIOD OF RECORD - August 2012 to current year.
    PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: January 2013 to September 2013. WATER TEMPERATURE: January 2013 to September 2013. TURBIDITY: January 2013 to September 2013.
    COOPERATION - Funding for this station is provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency Chesapeake Bay Program Office (USEPA/CBPO) in collaboration with the Washington, DC District Department of the Environment, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
    INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor January 2013 to September 2013.
    REMARKS - Turbidity values greater than 1,000 formazin nepthelometric units (FNU) exceed the instrument calibration range. Values are included in the record but are presumed to have lower precision. Missing record due to periodic instrument malfunction.
