    USGS 02250030 TURKEY CREEK AT PALM BAY, FL

    PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

    Click to hidestation-specific text

    This gage is monitored in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Management District.

    Link to the St. Johns River Water Management District.

    Data are tidally affected -- Astronomical tides cause significant cycles of approximately 24.84 hours at this site. Because a different portion of the 24.84-hour tidal cycle is averaged in successive daily (24-hour) computations, a systematic secondary oscillation, unrelated to basin hydrology and having a period of about two weeks may be apparent in daily data.

    LOCATION.--Lat 28°01'01", long 80°35'46", referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in SE 1/4 sec.26, T.28 S., R.37 E., Brevard County, FL, Hydrologic Unit 03080202, near center of channel on upstream side of bridge on Port Malabar Boulevard, 1.6 mi southwest of the intersection of U.S. Highway 1 and State Highway 516 in Palm Bay, and 2.0 mi upstream from mouth.

    DRAINAGE AREA.--105 mi2, approximately.

    PERIOD OF RECORD.--February 1981 to September 1983, October 1983 to December 1986 (gage heights only), January 1987 to September 1988 (fragmentary), October 1988 to September 2006 to April 2007 (gage heights only), April 2007 to September 2010, October 2010 to current year (filtered).

    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder, acoustic velocity meter and data-collection platform. Datum of gage is 5.00 ft below NGVD of 1929 and 6.40 ft below NAVD of 1988. Prior to Oct. 1, 1986 at datum 5.00 ft higher.

    REMARKS.--Stage and discharge are affected by tides in the Indian River.
