Road, 1.5 mi upstream from mouth and 2.5 mi southwest of
DRAINAGE AREA--29.1 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD--Low-flow partial record measurements in water years 1971-73, 1991-93. Continuous stage data recorder April 1994 to current year.
GAGE--Data Collection Platform. Data are recorded at 15-minute intervals and transmitted hourly via satellite. Elevation of gage is 400 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, from topographic map.
REMARKS--Stage-discharge relation affected by seasonal backwater from aquatic vegetation and occasional backwater from beaver dams. Adjustments for backwater are included in the computed record.
