Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides discrete water-quality data collected from four sites on the Kansas River and four of its tributaries during July 2012 through September 2016. The water-quality constituents included in this data release are the cyanotoxins microcystin and cylindrospermopsin, the taste-and-odor compounds geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol, major ions, alkalinity, nutrients, suspended sediment, indicator bacteria, and actinomycetes bacteria.

Purpose

These data were collected by the USGS Kansas Water Science Center, in cooperation with the Kansas Water Office, City of Lawrence, City of Topeka, City of Olathe, and WaterOne, as part of a study to characterize water-quality conditions in the Kansas River and tributaries. For more information on other datasets collected at these sites, see the "Water-Quality Monitoring in the Lower Kansas River Basin" webpage at the USGS Kansas Water Science Center website (https://www.usgs.gov/centers/kswsc/science/kansas-river-algal?qt-science_center_objects=0#qt-science_center_objects).
