SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - July 1938 to current year. Monthly discharge only for July 1938 published in WSP 1302.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 16.35 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to Oct. 22, 1938, nonrecording gage; Oct. 22, 1938 to Sept. 17, 1951, water-stage recorder; Sept. 17, 1951 to Aug. 29, 1952, nonrecording gage and crest-stage gage.
REMARKS -
  • Water Year 2021: Records good, except those above 3,700 ft³/s, which are poor.
  • Water Year 2020: Records good, except those above 2,500 ft³/s, which are poor.
  • Water Years 2018-2019: Records good, except those above 2,500 ft³/s and those for estimated discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Year 2017: Records good, except those above 500 ft³/s, which are fair, and those for estimated discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Years 2014-2016: Records good, except those above 500 ft³/s, which are fair, and those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Year 2013 and prior years’ accuracy statements can be found in Annual Water Data Reports.

  • Prior to June 1961, low flow regulated by storage at Burnt Mills Dam, 7.0 mi upstream from station.
