REGULATION.--Flow regulated to a large degree by Lake Ashtabula (station 05057500), 246 mi upstream. Since March 1993, flood flows that are diverted from the Sheyenne River just downstream from gaging station Sheyenne River above Sheyenne River Diversion near Horace (station 05059300) bypass this station. These flows are measured at streamflow station Sheyenne River Diversion at West Fargo (station 05059480). Figures of discharge given here include flow of the bypass. During some years, flow is diverted from just above the station into the Red River of the North in order to maintain adequate supply for municipal uses. Figures of daily discharge do not include this diversion.
