Table 1. Regression equations for estimating total and clay-size suspended sediment concentrations from turbidity data for the major tributaries to Detroit Lake, Oregon.

[The concentration of suspended sand and silt was determined by the difference between the estimated total and clay-size suspended-sediment concentrations. Abbreviations: SST, total suspended sediment, in milligrams per liter; Tb, Turbidity in FNU; SSC, Clay-size suspended sediment, in milligrams per liter]

Tributary Total suspended
Clay-size suspended
North Santiam River SST = 1.98 * Tb1.02 SSC = 1.17 * Tb0.55
Breitenbush River SST = 2.34 * Tb0.97 SSC = 1.23 * Tb0.55
French Creek SST = 1.21 * Tb0.97 SSC = 1.23 * Tb0.55
Blowout Creek SST = 1.64 * Tb1.08 SSC = 2.15 * Tb0.43
