  • Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to protect life and property on a case-by-case basis. The health and safety of the public and our employees are our highest priorities, and we continue to follow guidance from the White House, the CDC, and state and local authorities.

EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum gage height recorded, 7.30 feet, September 11, 2017; minimum gage height recorded, -6.90 feet, April 16, 2007, and March 8, 2008.
Extremes have been adjusted to NAVD88.
CLIMATOLOGICAL RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 2004 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Tipping-bucket raingage.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD -

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: May 1990 to current year.

WATER TEMPERATURE: November 1999 to current year.

DISSOLVED OXYGEN: August 2008 to October 2008.

SALINITY: October 2011 to current year.

REMARKS -
For period: 10/01/2014-09/30/2015: Specific Conductance and Water Temperature records are rated good.
For period: 10/01/2015-09/30/2016: Specific Conductance and Water Temperature records are rated good.
Computed Salinity records are unpublished, but available, for years prior to the 2012 Water Year.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD -

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum recorded, 12,200 microsiemens October 6, 1990; minimum recorded, 40 microsiemens on many days. 
WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum recorded, 32.1 °C, July 25, 26, 2010; minimum recorded, 2.5 °C, January 04, 2018.
DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum recorded, 8.3 mg/L, August 17, 2008; minimum recorded, 1.4 mg/L, August 26, 2008.
SALINITY: Maximum computed, 4.98 parts-per-thousand, November 15, 2012; minimum computed, 0.04 parts-per-thousand on many days in 2013, 2014, and 2015 WY. Actual salinity values were <0.04 parts-per-thousand on many days in 2013 and 2014 water years, but were not able to be computed due to input values exceeding the low end of the rating.
