Opatz, C.C., Curran, C.A., Tecca A.E., and Grossman, E.E., 2019, Stage, water velocity and water quality data collected in the Lower Nisqually River, McAllister Creek and tidal channels of the Nisqually River Delta, Thurston County, Washington, February 11, 2016 to September 18, 2017: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Multiple sensors for measuring stage (water level), water temperature, specific conductivity, turbidity and water velocity were installed at site NR2 (N 47° 04' 46.1"/W 122° 42' 30.2"), located approximately 3.1 km upstream from the mouth of the Nisqually River and within the tidal prism. The sensors were connected to a cell-phone telemetered, data collection platform (DCP) used to program and power each sensor as well as synchronize the timing of 15-minute measurement intervals. A vented conductivity, temperature and depth sensor (CTD, InSitu Aqua Troll) measured water temperature, water depth, specific conductance, and salinity from May 11, 2016 to August 3, 2016 (85 days) and from September 8, 2016 to March 16, 2017 (190 days).
