DRAINAGE AREA - 6,328 mi².
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Continuous-record discharge station, water years 1906-71, and October 2018 to current year. Annual maximum gage, water years 1972-2007. Continuous-record gage-height station with annual maximum discharge, water years 2008-2018.
GAGE - Water-stage, precipitation, and water temperature recorder with telemetry. Datum of gage is 124.24 ft above NAVD of 1988.
REMARKS - Annual peak data can be obtained by selecting Peak streamflow from the 'Available data for this site' drop-down menu above or by using this link. Discharges above 160,000 ft³/s from rating curve extension on basis of slope-area computation of peak flow.
