Summer flow rates are typically in the range of 200 cubic feet per second (5.7 m3/s) at the river's mouth. July values for pH have been measured at 8.2 or slightly alkaline July water temperatures are about 11.9 degrees Celsius and electrical conductivity at Cowie Bridge near the mouth has been measured at a relatively low value of .07 micro-Siemens per meter. Turbidity measured exactly 24 hours after a moderate rainfall of one centimeter was 14 JTU in a July circumstance.

Famous quotes containing the words quality and/or water:

    There were never in the world two opinions alike, any more than two hairs or two grains. Their most universal quality is diversity.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    For months it hasn’t known the taste of steel
    Washed down with rusty water in a tin.
    But standing outdoors hungry, in the cold,
    Except in towns at night, is not a sin.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
