  • 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.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
02293055 ORANGE RIVER NEAR BUCKINGHAM, FL
LOCATION - Lat 26°41'31", long 81°45'34" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Lee County, FL, Hydrologic Unit 03090205, located on the left bank, 1.2 mi upstream from the FPL power plant, 3 mi from the mouth, 7.7 mi northeast of Fort Myers.
DRAINAGE AREA - 68.4 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR-US-2010 site 02293055: 2008, 2009, gage height daily values and extremes revised to NAVD88 datum.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD -

DISCHARGE: November 2007 to April 2013. September 2018 to current year.

GAGE HEIGHT: November 2007 to April 2013. September 2018 to current year.

GAGE - Satellite data collection platform with water-stage vented pressure, and acoustic Doppler velocity meter. Datum of gage is North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). See REVISED RECORDS.
REMARKS - Records rated fair, except those for estimated discharges, which are poor. Streamflow at this site is affected by astronomical tides. Daily mean discharge was computed from filtered unit value discharge data. The Godin low-pass filter is used to remove principal tidal frequencies from unit values. Positive discharge (ebb tide) is generally to the west direction, and negative discharge (flood tide) to the east. Discharge and gage height data are available in files of the U.S. Geological Survey and online at http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD -

DISCHARGE: Maximum positive discharge (unfiltered), 1,250 ft³/s Aug. 23, 2008; maximum negative (unfiltered), 665 ft³/s June 20, 2008.

GAGE HEIGHT: Maximum gage height, 3.14 ft June 25, 2012; minimum, -2.19 Feb. 17, 2009. See REVISED RECORDS.

WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD -

SALINITY (TOP, BOTTOM): November 2007 to September 2010. Discontinued.

REMARKS - Salinity and water temperature sensors formerly located at surface (TOP) and -2.55 ft NAVD88 (BOTTOM). During periods of missing record, values may be higher or lower than the listed extremes. Salinity and water temperature data are available in files of the U.S. Geological Survey and online at http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis.
