Water-Year Summary for Site 04100220
A water-stage recorder with satellite telemetery installed in an aluminum shelter over a 15-inch diameter stilling well. An auxiliary wire-weight gage is attached to the upstream side of Dukes Bridge.
DATUM OF GAGE.--879.57 ft above NAVD88, from GPS survey on 11/28/2018. Formerly, 880 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929.
SURFACE AREA.--216 acres.
ESTABLISHED LEGAL LEVEL.--5.55 ft gage datum or 885.55 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 as decreed on May 6, 1968, by the Noble County Circuit Court. Jones, Steinbarger and Tamarack Lakes, all near Cosperville, have the same established level as Waldron Lake and hence the same lake levels for the period of record.
LAKE-LEVEL CONTROL.--The level of the lake is controlled by a fixed-crest concrete dam with removable boards.
INLET AND OUTLET.--The North Branch of the Elkhart River flows through the lake, entering through Jones Lake at the north and leaving at the west end of Waldron Lake. Another inlet enters at the southeast from Steinbarger Lake, 0.1 mi upstream.
