This dataset was compiled as part of the National Park Service's (NPS)
Baseline Water Quality Data Inventory and Analysis Project. The
objective of this project was to retrieve, format, and analyze water
quality data for all units of the National Park System with
significant water resources. The dataset contains water quality
measures for the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area (CVNRA) and ... was obtained from the United States Environmental Protection Agency's
(EPA) national Storage and Retrieval (STORET) water quality database.
