Water Quality Reports 52 Weeks A Year!
ORSANCO provides basic water quality and river condition information every week from six locations along the Ohio River, including Pittsburgh, Wheeling, Huntington, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Evansville. Samples are analyzed for temperature, turbidity, river stage, and velocity. During the recreation season (April through October),  E. coli bacteria data is also available. These weekly water quality reports are updated every Friday, and the information is posted on ORSANCO's  website . Check it out!!
