2 Lake Water Quality Profiles

Lake water quality profiles were collected at 1-2 month intervals at five sites at 1 meter depth intervals. Hydrolab MS5 sondes were descended from an anchored boat centered over the deepest point of each lake.

Raw water quality field data is stored in a Google Sheet that can be viewed at https://tinyurl.com/kwf-vogel-wqx-data.

Data visualizations are provided for each site visit here.

Note: pH values are excluded from the May and June 2021 site visits due to an instrument error.


2.2.0.3 Turbidity

Turbidity (NTU)

Note: some turbidity values near the benthic surface of each site visit are not displayed in the above plot in order to improve visualization.


2.2.0.4 Conductivity

Conductivity (uS/cm)

Figure 2.13: Conductivity (uS/cm)

Note: Conductivity values > 200 uS/cm are not shown in order to improve visualization. These values were found at the benthos of some water bodies.
