Chloride Concentrations, Conductivity, and Water Temperature Data from Upper Yahara River Watershed Tributaries in Dane County, WI: December 2019 – April 2021

Abstract

Conductivity and chloride were measured for 2 years in nine tributaries of Lake
Mendota and Lake Monona in Dane County, WI. HOBO Conductivity loggers continuously
measured absolute conductivity and water temperature every 30 minutes. Breaks in
data collection were due to a calibration period or if the loggers were out of the
water. Grab samples for chloride concentration occurred weekly or biweekly.
Conductivity and water temperature were measured with a field meter at each sampling
excursion. This data was needed for a master’s research thesis with the goal of
characterizing the spatial distribution and loading of chloride in the Upper Yahara
River Watershed.<br/>
