NOTE: During winter months, stage and discharge may be significantly affected by backwater from ice, resulting in incorrect discharge data. Consequently, discharge data may not be displayed during periods of ice effect. Click here for more information.

Minnehaha Creek Watershed District logo USGS Logo

Operated in cooperation with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District with USGS matching funds.

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

USGS WaterWatch's "Site Dashboard" provides seasonal and other context-oriented information about current and historical streamflow.

Precipitation data are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Retrievals of older data will not be available. Although rainfall instrumentation is calibrated least annually, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures may not be performed that would make the data suitable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
