This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release includes Escherichia coli (E. coli) data and also continuous hydrologic and physical parameters at USGS streamgage sites on the Little Blue River and its tributaries in Independence, MO, during the 2010-2016 recreation seasons. The U.S. Geological Survey, in coordination with the City of Independence, collected the data for use in regression models to evaluation E. coli loads in the Little Blue River and its tributaries within the boundaries of the City of Independence. Further information on the methods and the results of the data collection and regression models can be found in the conference proceedings paper cited below. These data support the following publication: Flickinger, A.; Christensen, E. Evaluation of Modeled Bacteria Loads Along an Impaired Stream Reach Receiving Discharge from a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System in Independence, Mo. Proceedings of the WEFTEC Conference, Chicago, IL, October 1-4, 2017.
