Some diversion from Grand Lake to Auglaize River Basin through Miami and Erie Canal into Jennings Creek at a point 9.2 mi upstream from station. Annual figures of runoff are considered to be within 10 percent of natural yield. Water-quality and sediment data formerly and currently collected at this site. Daily mean concentration and daily mean load records poor.

REMARKS - Water-quality auto samples and manual samples are collected at this station as part of the Western Lake Erie Basin project. An ISCO auto sampler is housed in the gage house. Sampling includes: Suspended-sediment, Nitrogen, ammonia as N (00608), Nitrogen, ammonia + organic nitrogen (total, whole water or TKN; 00625), Nitrogen, nitrite + nitrate (filtered water; 00631), Phosphorus, phosphate, ortho (or soluble reactive phosphorus; 00671), and Phosphorus (total, whole water; 00665).
