Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
02251000 SOUTH PRONG SAINT SEBASTIAN RIVER NEAR SEBASTIAN, FL
LOCATION - Lat 27°46'09", long 80°30'22" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in SW 1/4 sec.23, T.31 S., R.38 E., Indian River County, FL, Hydrologic Unit 03080203, on upstream side of bridge on State Highway 512, 2.5 mi east of Interstate Highway 95, 4 mi southwest of Sebastian, and 8.3 mi upstream from mouth.
DRAINAGE AREA - 35 mi², approximately.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1954 to May 1965 (discharge measurements only), May 1968 to August 1972 (annual peak discharge), August 1993 to September 2010, October 2010 to current year (filtered).
GAGE - Water-stage recorder, acoustic velocity meter, and data-collection platform. Datum of gage is 10.00 ft below NGVD of 1929 and 11.38 ft below NAVD of 1988.
COOPERATION - This gage is monitored in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Management District.
REMARKS - Streamflow at this site is significantly affected by astronomical tides. Daily mean discharge was computed from filtered unit value discharge data. The Godin low-pass filter was used to remove principal tidal frequencies from unit values. By convention, the U.S. Geological Survey has established ebb (seaward) flows as positive flow and flood (landward) flows as negative flows. The residuals are not total freshwater flows but are a combination of freshwater flows and water storage caused by higher and lower mean sea levels and storm surges from tropical storm events. Instantaneous discharge computed from index-velocity linear regression relation and gage height rating. Daily values of discharge and gage height are available online at http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis.
