CONVERSION FACTORS AND ABBREVIATIONS
Concentrations of chemical constituents in water are given either in milligrams per liter (mg/L) or micrograms per liter (mg/L).
To convert from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), subtract 4 hours to obtain Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) or subtract 5 hours to obtain Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Unless specified otherwise, vertical coordinate information is referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88) and horizontal coordinate information is referenced to the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83), Ohio State Plane (Ohio South, zone 3402) coordinates. Coordinates are reported in U.S. Survey Feet.
