This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides spatial water-quality data collected from Indian Creek in Johnson County, Kansas, on May 23, 2013, July 23, 2014, July 30, 2015, and August 26, 2015. Continuous water-quality monitors were used to measure water temperature, specific conductance, pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, phycocyanin, nitrate, and fluorescent dissolved organic matter (fDOM) at 30-second intervals along a 13.3-kilometer reach of Indian Creek. This data release was produced in compliance with the federal open-data requirements as a way to make scientific products associated with USGS research efforts and publications available to the public. This dataset includes all continuously (30-second intervals) measured spatial data collected as part of a study to describe the spatiotemporal variability of nutrients in Indian Creek.

Spatiotemporal variability of inorganic nutrients during wastewater effluent dominated streamflow conditions in Indian Creek, Johnson County, Kansas, 2012–15
Spatiotemporal variability of inorganic nutrients during wastewater effluent dominated streamflow conditions in Indian Creek, Johnson County, Kansas, 2012–15Nutrients, particularly nitrogen and phosphorus, are a leading cause of water-quality impairment in Kansas and the Nation. Indian Creek is one of the most urban drainage basins in Johnson County, Kansas, and environmental and biological conditions are affected by contaminants from point and other urban sources.
