SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - GAGE HEIGHT: December 2009 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at North American Vertical Datum of 1988.
REMARKS - Gage height affected by ocean tides. Gage height affected by regulation of many reservoirs above station. Gage-height data are measured down from the bridge deck and not using historical methods from the water pressure above a defined point in the river. Therefore water level data will read higher when ice is present on the water surface. Gaps in record indicate missing data.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum recorded gage-height, 11.61 ft, Jan. 3, 2014; minimum recorded gage-height, -8.39 ft, Dec. 16, 2016.
