MetadataShow full item record
We present 65 years of daily turbidity data from the North Oconee River obtained from the Athens drinking water treatment facility. We use these data to characterize short- and long-term water quality changes from nonpoint sources. The turbidity data have been coupled with daily USGS discharge data for the Middle Oconee River to provide an estimate of the distribution of daily sediment loads for the period of record.
