DRAINAGE AREA - 236 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - Unpublished, 2009: 2002(M).
PERIOD OF RECORD - March 1944 to September 1983 and April 1985 to current year (no winter records since 1989). Monthly discharge only for March 1944, published in WSP 1308. Operated as a high-flow partial-record station October 1983 to March 1985.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 841.14 ft above sea level (NGVD of 1929, levels by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers). Prior to October 1, 1965, non-recording gage at datum 3.0 ft higher. October 1, 1965 to May 17, 1989, non-recording gage at present site and datum.

Accuracy of records for water years prior to 2014 are noted in the individual Annual Data Reports for those water years. For water years 2014 onward, records fair except for discharges 0.5 ft³/sec, or less and estimated discharges, which are poor, unless otherwise noted.

REGULATION.--Large part of high flow of Wild Rice River diverted into Marsh River Basin at overflow section 4.6 mi east of Ada. Another diversion from Wild Rice River Basin formed in 1947, 1.5 mi southeast of Ada and diverted water at all stages from 1947-51, after which it was closed except for a small regulated flow diverted for abatement of pollution from Ada sewage plant effluent.
