Record quality ratings may not be included in the water-year summary for approved records newer than 09/30/2018. Record quality is still being rated internally. For questions about record quality ratings, please send email to gs-w-oh_NWISWeb_Data_Inquiries@usgs.gov.

Beginning Sept. 1954, flow regulated by Hoover Reservoir upstream from station. Since Aug. 1973, flow regulated by Alum Creek Lake upstream from station. Small diversions from Alum Creek do not affect flow appreciably. Beginning on Oct. 1, 1974, flow diverted from river by Hap Cremean Water Plant upstream from station and returned as treated wastewater to Scioto River. Prior to the 2014 water year, adjustments were reported for monthly and annual streamflows and long-term mean streamflows were reported as diversion-adjusted values. Beginning with the 2014 water year, published streamflows are no longer adjusted for diversion. Average diversions in ft³/s for the following water years are in the table below:

Water Year   Average Diversion
   2014            109
   2015            107
   2016            118
   2017            117
   2018            113
   2019            107
   2020            112
