Turbidity Offsets

Turbidity offsets classes
Turbidity offset classes based on the data distribution

Turbidity had site-specific targets that used annual medians and results are reported in offsets from the established target summarized by year and for the period of record (POR). Once annual and POR medians were calculated per site, queries were created to calculate the number of records below the minimum targets provided in the table.

Outputs were exported to Microsoft Excel where pivot tables were used to summarize the data by averaging offsets of each sublagoon, or section of a sublagoon, for each year and the entire POR. The frequency distribution of the data, as shown in the figure guided the classes to be used for scoring.
