05515500 KANKAKEE RIVER AT DAVIS, IN
LOCATION - Lat 41°23'22.7", long 86°42'22.2" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, in NW 1/4 NE 1/4 sec.24, T.34 N., R.3 W., Starke County, IN, Hydrologic Unit 07120001, on downstream side of bridge on CR W1500S at Davis, 1.3 mi downstream from Mill Creek, 4 mi east of Hanna, and at mile 110.1.
DRAINAGE AREA - 542 mi² of which 137 mi² probably is noncontributing. of which 137 mi² does not contribute directly to surface runoff. Drainage area derived from the "Drainage Areas of Indiana Streams" publication
REVISIONS HISTORY - WSP 1338: 1953. WSP 2115: Drainage area.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - July 1905 to July 1906 and October 1924 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods, published in WSP 1308.
GAGE - A water-stage recorder on the downstream side of bridge.  Datum of gage is 664.34 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Previous datum was 664.68 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. July 13, 1905, to July 21, 1906, non-recording gage at site 50 ft downstream at different datum.
