Record quality ratings will not be included in the water-year summary for approved records newer than 09/30/2019. 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.

Flood flow regulated by Lockington retarding basin on Loramie Creek 15.5 mi upstream. Low and medium flow slightly regulated by Indian Lake, 53.5 mi upstream from station, and by Lake Loramie 36.6 mi upstream from station on Loramie Creek; combined capacity, 58,900 acre-ft. Recharge to the City of Troy wellfield is largely induced infiltration from the Great Miami River. Groundwater pumpage upstream from the station is returned to the river as treated wastewater 1 mi downstream from the station and could affect low flow. Average pumpage rates in ft³/s for the following water years are in the table below:

Water Year   Average Pumpage Rate
   2014             5.69
   2015             5.78
   2016             5.48
   2017             2.68
   2018             5.61
   2019             5.47
   2020             6.04
   2021             6.07
