DRAINAGE AREA - 24.8 mi².
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - June 2012 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 915 ft. above NAVD of 1988, from topographic map.
REMARKS - Records are considered fair, except those for estimated discharges which are poor, and other periods as noted. For records status prior to October 1, 2013, see remarks printed in annual water-data reports. Gage-height telemeter at station.
CLIMATOLOGICAL RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Tipping bucket rain gage Jun. 2012 - present.
INSTRUMENTATION - Tipping bucket rain gage with electronic datalogger.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum daily rainfall, 2.32 in., Apr. 13, 2014.
REMARKS - Data are recorded to the nearest 5 or 15 minutes in the datalogger, depending upon flow conditions at the site. WY2012 Remarks: Records are good. All unit values and daily values are stored in ADAPS. WY2013: Rainfall estimated to be 0.00 on Dec. 10, 12-14, Jan. 3, Feb. 7-8, 14, 18, 22-24, Mar. 6, 14, and 18 because recorded precipitation was interpreted as collector snowmelt. Collector snowmelt was removed from the record. Daily values are marked as estimated on Jan. 26 and Mar. 9 because recorded precipitation was interpreted as a combination of rainfall and some collector snowmelt. Remarks.—Records are poor due to episodic clogging of drainage towers interfering with the tipping bucket system. Periods of high rainfall intensity and/or rainfall amounts may be biased low. All unit values and daily values are stored in ADAPS. WY2014: Rainfall estimated to be 0.00 on Dec. 2, 17, 28, Jan. 10, 16, Feb. 18, and Mar. 7 because recorded precipitation was interpreted as collector snowmelt. Collector snowmelt was removed from the record. Daily values are marked as estimated on Dec. 4 because recorded precipitation was interpreted as a combination of rainfall and some collector snowmelt. Daily value for Oct. 31 estimated from 05427927 DORN (SPRING) CREEK @ CT HIGHWAY Q NR WAUNAKEE, WI due to datalogger malfuntion. Remarks.—Records are poor due to episodic clogging of drainage towers interfering with the tipping bucket system. Periods of high rainfall intensity and/or rainfall amounts may be biased low. All unit values and daily values are stored in ADAPS. WY2015: Rainfall estimated to be 0.00 on Nov. 20, 29, Dec. 12, 21, Feb. 7, and Mar. 23 because recorded precipitation was interpreted as collector snowmelt. Collector snowmelt was removed from the record. Daily values for Apr. 9-10 estimated from 05427927 DORN (SPRING) CREEK @ CT HIGHWAY Q NR WAUNAKEE, WI due to rain gage malfunction. Remarks. Prior to Nov. 2014, records are poor due to episodic clogging of drainage towers interfering with the tipping bucket system. Periods of high rainfall intensity and/or rainfall amounts may be biased low. For periods after Nov. 2014, records are good. All unit values and daily values are stored in ADAPS.
