USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
05075000 RED LAKE RIVER AT HIGH LANDING NEAR GOODRIDGE, MN
LOCATION - Lat 48°02'55", long 95°48'30" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NW 1/4 NW 1/4 sec.28, T.153 N., R.40 W., Pennington County, MN, Hydrologic Unit 09020303, at County Highway 24 bridge at High Landing, 7 miles south of Goodridge and 33 miles upstream of Thief River Falls.
DRAINAGE AREA - 2,300 mi².
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1929 to September 2000 (daily-discharge record). Operated as high-flow partial-record station 2001 to September 2014. October 2014 to current year (seasonally operated daily-discharge record).
GAGE - Water-stage recorder.
REMARKS - Records fair
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 4,060 ft³/s, July 7, 1975, maximum gage height, 13.39 ft.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water year 2006
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURES: July to August, 2006. SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: July to August, 2006. pH: July to August, 2006. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: July to August, 2006. DISSOLVED OXYGEN, % OF SATURATION: July to August, 2006.
INSTRUMENTATION - A water-quality monitor was located 40 feet downstream of bridge and near right edge of water, to measure specific conductance, pH, temperature, and dissolved oxygen.
REMARKS - Parameters monitored were compared independently with a calibrated meter weekly to bi-weekly. Corrections were applied based on USGS standard procedures. Specific conductance data was rated excellent for the period of record. pH data was rated excellent for the period of record. Temperature data was rated excellent for the period of record. Records represent water temperatures at sensors within 0.5 C. Dissolved oxygen data was rated excellent for the period of record. Dissolved-oxygen, % of saturation, was determined by an equation determined by Weiss (1970) which uses water temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, and barometric pressure.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum, 294 uS/cm, July 31 and August 1, 2006; minimum, 284 uS/cm, July 25 and August 3, 2006. pH: Maximum, 8.2, many days in 2006; minimum, 7.7, many days in 2006. WATER TEMPERATURES: Maximum, 27.5 C, July 30, 31, 2006; minimum, 21.5 C, August 7, 2006. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum, 10.0 mg/L, August 6, 2006; minimum, 45.0 mg/L, August 1, 2006. DISSOLVED OXYGEN, % OF SATURATION: Maximum, 121, Aug. 6, 7, 2006; minimum, 62, Aug. 1, 2006.
EXTREMES FOR CURRENT YEAR - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum, 294 uS/cm, July 31 and August 1; minimum, 284 uS/cm, July 25 and August 3. pH: Maximum, 8.2 many days; minimum, 7.7, many days. WATER TEMPERATURES: Maximum, 27.5 C, July 30, 31; minimum, 21.5 C, August 7. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum, 10.0 mg/L, August 6; minimum, 45.0 mg/L, August 1. DISSOLVED OXYGEN, % OF SATURATION: Maximum, 121, Aug. 6, 7; minimum, 62, Aug. 1.
