    DRAINAGE AREA.--10,400 square miles.

    PERIOD OF RECORD.--December 1902 to December 1903, gage height and discharge measurements only, October 1913 to present. Monthly discharge for October and November 1913 published in WSP 1308 Gage-height records collected at same site November 1908 to December 1912 are contained in reports of U. S. Weather Bureau.

    REVISED RECORDS.--WSP 785: 1921(M). WSP 875: 1921. WSP 1308: 1915(M), 1917-18(M), 1920-21(M), 1924(M). WDR WI-79-1: Drainage area.

    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 666.55 ft (NAVD88). Prior to Nov. 22, 1929, onrecording gage on bridge 200 ft upstream at same datum. Nov. 22, 1929, to Mar. 15, 1930, nonrecording gage at present site and datum.

In 1938 when the maximum of record occurred, there were 21 reservoirs upstream from station, the two large reservoirs, Petenwell and Castle Rock were not yet in existence. Usually flows less than 20 ft3/s were diverted out of the basin through Portage Canal to the Fox River throughout the year. Gage-height telemeter and data-collection platform at station.
