Because the real-time water quality data presented on the Seminole Watershed Atlas goes through a series of transfers before becoming available, there can sometimes be a time delay in presenting the data. Additionally, if the water quality stations or computers transferring the data are tampered with, this may cause problems in being able to present the data in 12 hour increments. In addition, the data do not undergo the same level of quality control as other data sets prior to being presented on the Atlas. A caveat of using near-real time data is the possibility of error. Near-real time has not undergone as many quality control procedures common to our other data sets. Therefore, occasionally due to equipment malfunction there may exist errors within the data. Every attempt is being made to mitigate these errors before they occur.
