SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - April 1914 to December 1923, December 1926 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 723.21 ft (NAVD 1988). Prior to Dec. 18, 1926, nonrecording gage at site 1.3 mi downstream at 712.73 ft (1912 adjustment). Dec. 18, 1926 to Sept. 30, 2003 at site 0.3 mi downstream at 700.24 ft (1912 adjustment). Oct. 1, 2003 to Sept. 30, 2013 at current site at 724.00 ft (1912 adjustment).
COOPERATION - Base data furnished by Miami Conservancy District.
REMARKS - Records fair for 2014, except for estimated records, which are poor. Oct. 1, 2014 to Aug. 18, 2015: records fair, except for estimated records, which are poor. Aug. 19, 2015 to Oct. 5, 2015: records good. Oct. 6, 2015 to Oct. 17, 2016: records poor.  Oct. 18, 2016 to Oct. 24, 2017: discharge records fair except estimated records, which are poor. Oct. 24, 2017 to Oct. 10, 2018: discharge records poor.

During some runoff periods between Oct. 31, 2003 and Apr. 9, 2015, gage heights measured on the rising limb of the hydrograph appear to have lagged the actual rise of the water surface. Revisions to the gage-height and streamflow time-series records were made for some of the affected runoff periods. Gage height and streamflow records for the affected periods (particularly during a rising limb of the hydrograph) should be treated as more uncertain because of the varying occurrence and severity of the lag.

Flood flow regulated by Germantown retarding basin, beginning in 1920. Stage affected by backwater from Germantown Dam.

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 togs-w-oh_NWISWeb_Data_Inquiries@usgs.gov.

EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of Mar. 25, 1913, reached a stage of 18.3 ft, original site and datum; discharge, 66,000 ft³/s, computed by Miami Conservancy District.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 9,390 ft³/s July 8, 1915, gage height 11.7 ft, from graph based on gage readings, site and datum then in use.
