USGS Super Gages Monitor Continuous Water-Quality at Streamflow Gages

Tim Lathrop, Hydrologist, USGS Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Water Science Center, trlathro@usgs.gov

WHEN:  January 30, 2019;  11:30 am – 1:00 pm

WHERE: Wilma H. Schiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, 352 Dodridge St, Columbus OH


The United States Geological Survey operates twelve Super Gage sites in Indiana, cooperating with a variety of organizations (https://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2015/3041/pdf/fs2015-3041.pdf). Super Gages provide real-time estimates of concentrations and loads of suspended sediment, total nitrogen, and/or total phosphorus within watersheds where they are deployed (https://nrtwq.usgs.gov/in/).  Tasks performed at each site often include quantification of streamflow, operation of continuous water-quality monitors, discrete sampling, and modeling of constituents not easily measured in real-time. Continuous, and publicly available data: 1) highlight 15-minute, daily, and event-driven fluctuations (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/in/nwis/current/?type=quality); 2) provide richer data sets for understanding relations between water quality, hydrology, geology, and land use; and 3) promote more effective resource management.
