SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1939 to current year. Monthly discharge only for October 1939, published in WSP 1304.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and satellite telemeter at station. Datum of gage is 42.15 ft above NGVD of 1929. Prior to Sept. 8, 1940, nonrecording gage at same site and datum.
REMARKS - Records good, except for periods of estimated daily discharges, which are considered poor. Computed discharges are adjusted for storage by using the Boyer method for stages between 8 and 20 feet. Adjusted daily discharges that are greater than 10% from the computed daily discharges are edited to reflect the adjusted values. Adjusted peak discharges that are greater than 5% different from the computed values are used for the peak-flow data.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood in April 1900 reached a stage of about 32 ft, from information by local residents.
