USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
LOCATION - Lat 35°18'50", long 77°18'10" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Craven County, NC, Hydrologic Unit 03020202, on left bank 0.25 mi upstream from bridge on Secondary Road 1470, 1.5 mi upstream from Core Creek and 2.0 mi east of Fort Barnwell.
DRAINAGE AREA - 3,900 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR NC-02-1A: 2001 (daily discharges)
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1996 to current year, occasional measurements water years 1955-1995.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and acoustic velocity meter. Datum of gage is at National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Satellite telemetry at streamgage.
REMARKS - Flow regulated by Falls Lake (station 02087182) and is affected by both astronomical and wind tides. The astronomical tides occur at primary harmonic periods of 12.42 hours and 24.84 hours. Daily mean discharge for this site may be affected by aliasing due to tides and can contain fluctuations that are not representative of net downstream discharge.
Gage-height records are generally good. Discharge records are generally poor. Additional details on the accuracy of the records can be obtained by contacting the USGS South Atlantic Water Science Center at gs-w-nc_nwisweb_data_inquiries@usgs.gov.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum Discharge 57,200 ft³/s, September 20, 1999; Maximum gage height, 22.75 ft., September 20, 1999 from floodmarks as a result of Hurricane Floyd.
