Then enter the stations name and the type of data (e.g. flow, temp, conductivity, %tdg, spill, etc.) that you want.

 

Or how about a particular group (e.g. fms, rogue, willamette, columbia, etc.) and parameter?

 

Or how about a particular state and parameter?

 

Do you only want to find the active records for a station?
