Minnehaha Creek Watershed District logo

Operated in cooperation with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District

NEW: Context-oriented information about current and historical streamflow from USGS WaterWatch Dashboard.

For paddling the creek, the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District suggests a streamflow (also known as discharge or flow rate) between 75-150 cubic feet per second, depending on experience. More information is available from their web page here or at the link above.

Precipitation data are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Time-series data or cumulative daily values will NOT be available for retrieval following the 120-day display period. Although the rainfall instrumentation will be calibrated at least annually, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures may not be performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
