Topic PH: Klamath Basin Maximum at 18 Sites 1996
Caption:  The pH is a measure of acid base conditions in water with neutral being a value of 7 with lower values representing acid conditions and higher values basic or alkaline conditions. The data represent hand held measurements as part of the 304B water quality program. The pH at all 18 Klamath Basin locations (see key below) exceeded 8 which is slightly basic. The highest readings were in the Tule Basin, however, a reading of 9.5 was recorded for the Klamath River above the Scott. Bodies of water with significant algae blooms may show major increases in pH as a function of photosynthesis (see Upper Klamath/NCRWQCB pH results). Data from the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board.
