Stream Test Data
***This page is still under review and will be finalized shortly***
Water Quality Data
The data we collect in Lake Forest Park is entered in the Global Water Watch (GWW) database. Global Water Watch is a voluntary network of community-based water monitoring groups. "The overall goal of GWW is to foster watershed stewardship through the development of citizen volunteer monitoring of surface waters for the improvement of both water quality and public health." The water quality database is maintained by the AU Water Resources Center at Auburn University.
Here are the steps to access our stream data:
On the Global Water Watch page, click Charts by Gridview.
Scroll down the grid to access McAleer Creek data (currently on page 1). Click the blue rounded rectangle on the left side of the grid to display the chart. You can customize the view as you wish.
To access Lyon Creek data (currently on page 2), return to the grid, scroll to the bottom, and click page 2. Then scroll down to Lyon Creek.

A rough R data package is maintained at https://github.com/skidad/lfpstreamkeepers containing data and R scripts to produce the tables and graphs found here.
