SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - September 1931 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 337.53 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to Oct. 3, 2017 datum of gage was reported as 341.52 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Satellite telemetry at station.
REMARKS - Peak flows are affected by flood-control regulation at East Brimfield Lake and Westville Lake since 1960. The natural flow regime can be altered by regulation at East Brimfield Lake, Westville Lake, and other small reservoirs in the basin.
  • Water Year 2019: Records good except for periods of estimated discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Year 2018: Records good except for periods of estimated discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Year 2017: Records good except for periods of estimated discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Year 2016: Records good except for periods of estimated daily discharges, which are fair.
  • Water Year 2015: Records good except for periods of estimated daily discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Year 2014: Records good except for periods of estimated daily discharges, which are poor.

  • EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - The maximum peak flow of 49,300 ft³/s was obtained from rating curve extended above 820 ft³/s on basis of slope-area measurements of peak flow. The maximum peak stage of 18.96 ft. was from flood marks.
