Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2020
LOCATION - Lat 45°03'00", long 93°18'36" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NE 1/4 NW 1/4 sec.11, T.118 N., R.21 W., Hennepin County, MN, Hydrologic Unit 07010206, at bridge over Shingle Creek at intersection of Queen Avenue North and 52nd Avenue North in Minneapolis.
DRAINAGE AREA - 28.2 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - March 12, 2010, daily-mean discharge. WDR MN-96-1: Specific conductance.
PERIOD OF RECORD - May 1996 to September 1999, May 2001 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 850 ft above sea level (from topographic map).
REMARKS - Records good except those for estimated daily-mean discharges, which are poor.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Minimum discharge, 0.10 ft³/s, many days, several years.
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water years 1996 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: May 1996 to September 1998. February 2004 to current year. WATER TEMPERATURE: May 1996 to September 1998. February 2004 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor May 1996 to September 1998, and February 2004 to current year, which provides continuous recordings. Sensor is located at gage.
REMARKS - Conductance and temperature at the sensor were compared independently with a calibrated meter every one to two months. Variation of conductance was within 13% (corrections applied). Variation of temperature between meter and recorded values were within +/- 0.2 C (corrections applied). Prior to the 2009 water year, water temperatures at sensor were determined within 0.5 C.

EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: A value of 6,620 uS/cm was detected on March 11, 2002, based on discrete water sample.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum, 10,900 uS/cm, Feb. 14, 2013; minimum, 65 uS/cm, Sep. 4, 2005. WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum, 29.7 C, July 05, 2012; minimum, -0.5 C, March 12, 2014, March 15, 2014, March 22,2014, April 1, 2014.
