SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1999 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Elevation of gage is 1,260 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, from topographic map. Satellite telemetry at streamgage.
REMARKS - Considerable regulation at times caused by Santeetlah Dam, 7.5 mi upstream. Water from Santeetlah Lake, 7.5 mi upstream, is diverted to hydro powerplant on the Little Tennessee River, which bypasses gage.

2015 - Records good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are fair.
2016 - Records good.
2017 - Records good, except those for estimated discharges, which are fair.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge from rating curve extended above 5,000 ft³/s on basis of step-backwater computation of peak flow.
CLIMATOLOGICAL RECORDS
