     - pH Min:  5.313                                                  
     - pH Max:  6.956                                                  
     - pH Average: 6.555                                                        
     - pH Avg within normal:  Yes                

 DO (normal range 4-15 mg/L)
     - DO Min: 6.65 mg/L
     - DO Max: 7.95 mg/L
     - DO Average: 7.59 mg/L
     - DO Avg within normal:  Yes

     - Temperature Min: 20.1°C                                
     - Temperature Max: 25.6°C
