National Real Time Water Quality for the NationContinuous real-time water-quality data are used for decisions regarding drinking water, water treatment, regulatory programs, recreation, and public safety. Sensors in streams typically measure streamflow, water temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen and turbidity. Additionally, these measurements can be used as surrogates to compute real-time concentrations and loads of other water-quality constituents.
