The first half of this webinar will describe methods for conducting an exploratory analysis of historical water quality data collected from a water distribution system using online monitoring instruments. The second half will describe how source water constituents of concern can be estimated in near-real-time using continuous water-quality data. The basic data collection requirements and statistical methods needed to develop these relations will be discussed. Examples of this work from existing USGS studies will be presented, including the use of continuous water-quality data to estimate abundancies of cyanobacteria and associated toxins on the Kansas River.
