USGS Water-Year Summary 2017
02288800 TAMIAMI CANAL OUTLETS, MONROE TO CARNESTOWN, FL
LOCATION - Lat 25°53'14.44", long 81°15'42.61" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NW 1/4 sec.06, T.53 S., R.31 E., Collier County, FL, Hydrologic Unit 03090204, on upstream side of bridge 84 on U.S. Highway 41.7 mi east of Carnestown, and 10 mi west of Monroe.
DRAINAGE AREA - Indeterminate.
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR FL-98-2A;1997. WDR-US-2008, site 02288800;2005.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - August 1960 to current year.
GAGE - Satellite data collection platform with water-stage shaft encoder. Electronic data logger prior to December 2, 2011. Datum of gage is National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 and 1.47 ft below North American Vertical Datum of 1988(NAVD 88). To maintain consistency with the historical record, data recorded at NGVD 1929 does not reflect the updated elevation reported by NGS in 1992, which is 0.08 ft lower. Prior to May 2, 1963, at site 2 mi east at datum 0.93 ft lower. From May 2, 1963 to February 10, 1965, at site on west bank of unnamed lateral 30 ft downstream. From February 10, 1965 to December 2, 2011, gage located on downstream side of bridge 84 on U.S. Highway 41.7 mi east of Carnestown, and 10 mi west of Monroe.
COOPERATION - U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USGS Greater Everglades Priority Ecosystems Science, USGS National Streamflow Information Program and National Park Service.
REMARKS - Figures of discharge consist of runoff from Big Cypress Watershed as represented by flow through all the outlets of the Tamiami Canal from Monroe, 55 mi west of Miami, to a point 1 mi east of the intersection with State Highway 29 at Carnestown (Bridge numbers 95-77). Flow at western-most outlets affected by tide. Flow measurements under tidal influence are computed as zero flow. Zero flow occurs for numerous days, during most of the water years. Peak flow above base is not determined.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum gage height, 6.33 ft NGVD29, Sept. 13, 2017; minimum, 1.18 ft below NGVD29, June 12, 2011.
