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.

  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
LOCATION - Lat 45°03'00", long 93°18'36" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NE 1/4 NW 1/4 sec.11, T.118 N., R.21 W., Hennepin County, MN, Hydrologic Unit 07010206, at bridge over Shingle Creek at intersection of Queen Avenue North and 52nd Avenue North in Minneapolis.
DRAINAGE AREA - 28.2 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - March 12, 2010, daily-mean discharge. WDR MN-96-1: Specific conductance.
PERIOD OF RECORD - May 1996 to September 1999, May 2001 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 850 ft above sea level (from topographic map).
REMARKS - Records good except those for estimated daily-mean discharges, which are poor.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Minimum discharge, 0.10 ft³/s, many days, several years.
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water years 1996 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: May 1996 to September 1998. February 2004 to current year. WATER TEMPERATURE: May 1996 to September 1998. February 2004 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor May 1996 to September 1998, and February 2004 to current year, which provides continuous recordings. Sensor is located at gage.
REMARKS - Conductance and temperature at the sensor were compared independently with a calibrated meter every one to two months. Variation of conductance was within 13% (corrections applied). Variation of temperature between meter and recorded values were within +/- 0.2 C (corrections applied). Prior to the 2009 water year, water temperatures at sensor were determined within 0.5 C.

EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: A value of 6,620 uS/cm was detected on March 11, 2002, based on discrete water sample.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum, 10,900 uS/cm, Feb. 14, 2013; minimum, 65 uS/cm, Sep. 4, 2005. WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum, 29.7 C, July 05, 2012; minimum, -0.5 C, March 12, 2014, March 15, 2014, March 22,2014, April 1, 2014.
