Summary

These data files include georeferenced water-quality data with associated time stamps (Central Standard Time) for basic water-quality parameters as measured by a towed multiparameter sonde (YSI 6920 sonde) from a manned boat in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. Data were collected on February 25-27, 2010, and again on March 2-3, 2010. The data collected in February 2010 had the sonde on a fixed mount about 1 foot below the surface. The data collected in March 2010 had the sonde on a towed cable about 7-9 feet below the surface. All data have been edited and reviewed. Omitted data have been flagged with a data value of -9999 in the data files.

Purpose

These data were collected in an attempt to identify any locations along the lower Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal (CSSC) where water from Des Plaines River (DPR) might be in-flowing through fractures in the bedrock. The temperature and specific conductance of the CSSC and DPR were substantially different during this period allowing the signature of DPR water to possibly be identified in the canal.
