USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
LOCATION - Lat 26°41'50", long 80°42'50" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in SW 1/4 sec.35, T.43 S., R.36 E., Palm Beach County, FL, Hydrologic Unit 03090202, 30 ft from west bank, 800 ft downstream from Hillsboro Canal, 1,600 ft downstream from gate structure S-351 and pump station 2 at Lake Okeechobee, and 2.5 mi north of South Bay.
DRAINAGE AREA - Indeterminate.
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR FL-77-2A: 1974, 1975; WDR FL-92-2A: 1991; WDR FL-93-2A: 1977, 1985, WDR FL-03-2A: 2002.
PERIOD OF RECORD - February 1957 to current year.
GAGE - Satellite data collection platform with water-stage shaft encoder and acoustic Doppler velocity meter. Prior to January 1, 2002, acoustic velocity meter at same site and datum. Prior to October 1, 1986, water-stage recorder at pump station 2 used for gage heights at this station. Datum of gage is National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers bench mark). Prior to January 18, 1954, water-stage and deflection-meter recorder at site 1,600 ft downstream at same datum. January 19, 1965 to September 30, 1967, deflection-meter recorder at site 1,600 ft downstream. Satellite data collection platform collecting stage and velocity data was installed November 29, 1990.
COOPERATION - South Florida Water Management District.
REMARKS - Flow regulated by S-351 gate and pump station at Lake Okeechobee. Flow occasionally reversed during and after periods of heavy rainfall by pumpage into the canal from agricultural lands in the Everglades, by pumping at structure 2 or by gravity flow through gates during periods of negative heads (negative figures indicate flow reversed). Discharge was the difference in flow between North New River Canal at S-2 and S-351 and Hillsboro Canal below S-351 October 1967 to June 9, 1987. Records of stage and discharge for water year 2002 are published in the data book for water year 2003. Records of gage heights prior to October 1961 are available in files of the U.S. Geological Survey.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum gage height, 14.09 ft Sept. 28, 1962; minimum, 6.98 ft Oct. 28, 1981.
