USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
LOCATION - Lat 33°31'03", long 88°29'22" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, in NE 1/4 sec.11, T.18 S., R.19 W., Lowndes County, MS, Hydrologic Unit 03160101, Huntsville Meridian, at control tower on right bank of lock, 3.5 mi northwest of Columbus, 4.1 mi upstream from 02441500 Tombigbee River at Columbus, 6.4 mi upstream from Luxapallila Creek, and at mile 325.3.
DRAINAGE AREA - 4,440 mi², prior to construction of Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway.
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1899 to December 1912. August 1928 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods, published in WSP 1304. Prior to April 1981, published as "02441500 Tombigbee River at Columbus". Gage-height records collected in this vicinity, 1890 to 1971, are contained in reports of National Weather Service, and 1972 to present at site 02441500 Tombigbee River at Columbus.
GAGE - Water-stage, gate-position, and lockage recorder. Datum of gage is 100.00 ft above NGVD of 1929 (levels by U. S. Army Corps of Engineers). Prior to April 1, 1982, water-stage recorder at site 4.1 mi downstream at datum 28.91 ft higher (see 02441500 Tombigbee River at Columbus). Water-stage recorder for Tombigbee River at Columbus (station 02441500) is used as base gage for this station when tail water gage-heights exceed 63 ft.
REMARKS - 10/01/2013 - 09/30/2014: No estimated daily discharges. Records good. Reservoir is formed by earth fill dam with concrete spillway with five 60 ft wide tainter gates with sill elevation of 138.0 ft above sea level and 110 ft by 600 ft lock with maximum lift of 27 ft at normal pool elevation of 163.0 ft above sea level. Minimum flow structure with manually operated gates and maximum discharge of about 300 ft³/s at normal pool. Storage began Jan. 16, l981, dam completed Jan. 29, 1981. Capacity 59,500 acre-ft at normal pool. Regulation for maintenance of navigational pool only. Beginning April 1, 1981, daily discharge computed from relation between discharge, head, gate openings, lockages, and minimum flow structure. Statistics shown below are for water years 1982 to the current year, except for instantaneous extremes, which are shown for the entire period of record at the datum then in use. Satellite telemeter at station.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of Apr. 8, 1892, the greatest since at least 1867, reached an elevation of 173.0 ft above sea level at site 3.93 mi downstream, discharge 268,000 ft³/s estimated by U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.
