Summary

In the summer of 2014 at Pawtuckaway Beach at Pawtuckaway State Park in Nottingham New Hampshire, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) established a seasonal meteorological station (430508071091801) on the beach and a seasonal water-quality station (01073389) in Pawtuckaway Lake proximal to the swimming area. Data recorded at 15-minute intervals by the meteorological station were wind speed, wind direction, precipitation, barometric pressure, and relative humidity. Data recorded at 15-minute intervals by the water-quality station were air and water temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen (DO), pH, and stage (water level), which characterized water conditions at the swimming area. In 2015 the USGS also established a stage monitoring [...]

Purpose

The USGS data characterized weather and water-quality conditions at Pawtuckaway Beach antecedent to when the E. coli samples were collected. Regression models were generated with the data to evaluate environmental conditions that were related to high levels of E. coli at the beach that would lead to health advisories.
