Boulder Creek Water Quality Index
|6-parameter Test||result||unit||Q-value||weight factor||total|
|Fecal Coliform||170||#/100 mL||38||0.16||6.08|
|Total Phosphate||<0.01||mg/L PO4-P||100||0.10||10|
|totals (factors, total)||0.72||59.7|
The WQI is computed by converting measured Water Quality Parameters to "Q-Values" using charts developed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) water quality scientists. The Q-Values are then multiplied by a weighting factor based on the importance of that water quality parameter.
