DRAINAGE AREA - 75.1 mi².
- WSP 851: 1934(M), 1936(M). WSP 1201: 1933-34, 1935(M), 1937(M). WDR CT-83-1: Drainage area.
PERIOD OF RECORD - Discharge: June 1932 to current year. Water-quality records: water years 1961, 1965-74. Daily water temperature: water years 1961, 1967. Daily specific conductance: water years 1960-61. Daily pH: water years 1960-61. Daily iron: water years 1960-61.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 165.60 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, (levels by Corps of Engineers). Satellite telemetry at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - The maximum peak flow of 29,400 ft³/s was obtained from the rating curve extended above 1,200 ft³/s on basis of computation of peak flow over dam at 16.0 ft. and by slope-area measurement of flow. The maximum stage of 21.80 ft. was from flood marks. Minimum instantaneous discharge: 2.5 ft³/s, Aug. 30-31, 1966.
PERIOD OF RECORD - water years 1961, 1965-74.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - Daily water temperature: water years 1961, 1967. Daily specific conductance: water years 1960-61. Daily pH: water years 1960-61. Daily iron: water years 1960-61.
