Re: Temperature and water clarity of the Delaware River

I think this summer has been much cooler than the last several. I don't have empirical data at my fingertips, but I think the average temp this summer for the Philly region will be lower than normal. I also think it was wetter than many/most recent summers. The fresh water, more regular water movement, and lower temperatures may have helped with the water clarity.
