  10. Turbidity

    Is there a link that gives that reading ? Hourly or daily ? Sure would take the guess work out of wondering what the water color is on the river. Thanks for the knowledge
  11. River color

    Yes, still very muddy. Hope it clears up some with the water falling. It should but no guarantees on the river.
