DRAINAGE AREA.--405 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD.--Miscellaneous discharge measurements,
water years 2008, 2011. March 2011 to March 2015
REVISIONS HISTORY.--2011-13: Daily suspended-sediment
discharge and concentration.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum
of gage is 3.96 ft above NGVD of 1929. Auxiliary water-stage
recorder and crest-stage gage, 0.2 mi downstream from base gage
at datum 0.90 ft below NGVD of 1929.
REMARKS.--Considerable regulation at low to medium flow
at times caused by powerplant upstream from station.
Water Year 2014: Records poor except those for Sept. 8 to Sept.
30, which are good. Water Year 2015: Records good except those

REMARKS1.--Turbidity data are collected every
15 minutes using an in situ turbidity probe located 30 ft
upstream of the automatic sampler intake tubing. Daily
suspended-sediment load and concentration are derived from a
regression equation relating turbidity to suspended-sediment
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY
Maximum daily mean, about 4,090 mg/L, Aug. 28, 2011; minimum
daily mean, <0.5 mg/L, Dec. 1, 2012.
