Adding non-data line to legend ggplot2 Maximum Contaminant Level

kydaviddoyle
Hello everyone,

I have a plot showing chloride concentrations for various point over time.
I also have a dotted line that show the Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level
(my screening limit) on the graphs at 250 mg/L.  But I can not figure out
how to include the dotted line / Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level in
the legend.  Any thoughts?  My code is as following and is linked to my
data on the net.

Thank you in advance
David

I just glanced at the problem but I think you would have to create a new variable to replace the hline. What about adding some text annotation in the graph instead?

Re: Adding non-data line to legend ggplot2 Maximum Contaminant Level

Well, here is one way but it seems a bit clumsy.
In words, I created a new data.frame with "250" in the Chloride vector and "SMCL" in the Detections vector and supplessed one legend.
Warning: For my convenience I am using different data.frame names .

library(ggplot2)

MyData <-read.csv("http://doylesdartden.com/Stats/TimeSeriesExample.csv", sep=",")

MyData$Detections <- ifelse(MyData$D_Chloride ==1, "Detected", "NonDetect")


dat1 <-  MyData[, c(1, 3, 4, 6)]

dat2 <-  dat1[, c(1,2)]

dat2$Detections <-  rep("SMCL", nrow(dat2))
dat$Chloride <-  rep(250, nrow(dat2))

dat3 <-  rbind(dat1, dat2)

p <-  ggplot(dat3, aes(Year, Chloride, colour = Detections)) +
           geom_point(aes(shape=Detections), show.legend = F) +
           geom_line( aes(Year, Chloride))

 Hi John,
I used your recommendation of adding a new variable (see below) and it is plotting the line at the 250 mg/L mark but I still can not figure out how to get it added to the legend.
Thanks again for your help.
David

Again, I have not tried graphing this.

 Hi John,
How do I add a second y variable? ThanksDavid
