SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1939 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 269.1 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Satellite telemetry at station.
REMARKS -

Since 1984, the town of Southern Pines has withdrawn water for public supply 0.5 mi upstream from the gage. These withdrawals cause some diurnal fluctuation at low to medium flow and may affect yearly minimums.

Gage-height records are generally good. Discharge records are generally good except for estimated discharges, which are 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 10,900 ft³/s, September 18, 1945; Maximum gage height 11.49 ft, September 17, 2018.
