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.

On August 31, 2015, USGS Illinois Water Science Center staff deployed a 2000 kHz side-looking acoustic Doppler velocity meter (ADVM) in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal (CSSC) at the Electric Dispersal Barrier System (EDBS). These data were collected as a fully loaded commercial barge tow traversed the EDBS and passed the ADVM three times, and as several smaller vessels and an unloaded barge tow passed the ADVM. The ADVM was mounted to a rigid 2-inch PVC pipe in compliance with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) operational safety protocols for working in or near the EDBS. The pipe with ADVM was lowered 4.5 feet below the water surface on the west (right) bank of the canal at a location approximately 477 feet...

Bathymetric survey data of the Brandon Road Dam spillway was collected on May 27 and May 28, 2015 by the US Geological Survey (USGS) using Trimble Real-Time Kinematic Global Positioning System (RTK-GPS) equipment. The base station was set up over a temporarily installed survey pin on both days. This pin was surveyed into an existing NGS benchmark (PID: BBCN12) within the Brandon Road Lock property. In wadeable sections, a GPS rover with 2.0 meter range pole and flat-foot was deployed. In sections unable to be waded, a 2.0 meter range pole was fix-mounted to a jon boat, and a boat-mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) was used to collect the depth data. ADCP depth data were reviewed in the WinRiver II...

In August 2015, water velocities around a fully-loaded commercial barge tow were measured as the barge tow traveled upstream through the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal from a starting position in Lockport Pool, and passed through the Electric Dispersal Barrier System at river mile (RM) 296 near Romeoville, IL. Velocity measurements were made in and alongside the gap formed by the junction between the boxed stern of a rake hopper barge and the raked bow of a rake tanker barge (herein referred to as the rake-to-box junction gap) using two SonTek Argonaut SW 3kHz acoustic Doppler velocity meters (ADVM). One ADVM was mounted 0.091 meters below the water surface, facing downward in the center of the rake-to-box junction...

These data were collected during a dye tracing study of the lower Des Plaines River and lower Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal (CSSC) in November 2011 by the U.S. Geological Survey. The study attempted to identify potential inflows of Des Plaines River water through the fractured bedrock that separates the two water bodies. Data include Rhodamine WT dye concentrations measured every 3 or 10 minutes by means of Turner Designs C3 and C6 fluorometers with internal dataloggers at three fixed locations on the Des Plaines River, in three groundwater monitoring wells, at two fixed locations on the CSSC, and from a mobile vessel in the CSSC.

Water velocities were measured in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal (CSSC) in 2010 and 2011 using Teledyne Rio Grande 600 kHz and 1200 kHz acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP). The data were georeferenced with differential GPS receivers with submeter accuracy. Data were processed using the Velocity Mapping Toolbox (Parsons et al., 2013). Any data assigned a value of "­-9999" are bad or missing data and should not be used for analysis. Parsons, D. R., Jackson, P. R., Czuba, J. A., Engel, F. L., Rhoads, B. L., Oberg, K. A., Best, J.

To better understand the hydrodynamics and water-quality distributions of the lower portion of Hoover Reservoir near Westerville, Ohio, in response to selective withdrawal operations at the dam, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted two sets of synoptic surveys of water-quality and velocity in August 2015. On August 25, 2015, the middle intake gates were operational at the dam, while on August 27, 2015, the lower intake gates were operational. These water-quality data were collected with an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). The AUV operated in an undulating survey mode between six feet above the bed and the water surface at a dive angle of 15 degrees. Three primary survey paths were programmed, one along...
Water velocities were measured in the Illinois and Des Plaines Rivers using a Teledyne Rio Grande 1200 kHz acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP). ADCP data were collected in reciprocal pairs along cross-sections and along approximately streamwise-oriented lines between cross sections at the following locations: (1) the confluence of the Fox River and the Illinois River near Ottawa, IL on November 4, 2015 (2) immediately downstream of Starved Rock Lock and Dam on the Illinois River near Utica, IL on May 22, 2015 (3) the Dresden Island Pool of the Des Plaines River on July 31 – August 1, 2013 (4) the Marseilles Pool of the Illinois River on May 14-15, 2013 and May 28, 2013 The WinRiverII ASCII output file and...

Water velocities were measured in the Des Plaines River from approximately river mile 286 to river mile 284 on October 19–21, 2015 using Teledyne Rio Grande 1200 kHz acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP). The data were georeferenced with differential GPS receivers with submeter accuracy. These velocity data were collected in support of the US Army Corps of Engineers Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study (GLMRIS), and were concurrent with a dye-tracing study. ADCP data were collected in the approach channel of the Brandon Road Lock and downstream in the main channel of the Des Plaines River to determine the spatial distribution of depth-averaged velocity in the river on October 19–21, 2015. The data...

These data were collected using a 2 mHz TRDI StreamPro acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) in 2012 and a 1200 kHz Rio Grande ADCP in 2013, both deployed from a moving boat. The data were georeferenced with a Hemisphere Crescent A100 differential Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver with submeter accuracy. The data have been depth-averaged over the entire measured portion of the water column and temporally averaged over 30-second intervals to reduce noise. These data were collected as a part of a combined field campaign with Purdue University which included simultaneous egg and larvae sampling. Data were processed using the Velocity Mapping Toolbox (Parsons and others, 2013). Any data assigned a value of...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with DuPage County, Illinois, maintains a Watershed Data Management (WDM) database consisting of hourly dewpoint temperature, air temperature, solar radiation, wind speed data based on the data collected at the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and hourly potential evapotranspiration computed from them using the computer program LXPET (Lamoreux Potential Evapotranspiration). Child items in this folder contain annual updates of this database.
On October 20-21, 2015, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a dye study on the Des Plaines River at Brandon Road Lock and Dam (BRLD) near Rockdale, Illinois. The purpose of this dye study was to assess the mixing, advection, and dispersion of dye within the BRLD lock chamber and in the approach channel downstream. These data will inform designs of potential strategies for preventing upstream transport of invasive Asian carp through the BRLD. Dye was injected into the intakes for the lock chamber at the start of the filling process. The dye was injected through grates atop the intake channels on both sides of the lock. Injection began at 10:24 on October 20, 2015, and ended at 10:30 on October 20, 2015. A total...
