REMARKS -

Water discharge used to compute sediment record are from Illinois River at Valley City (station 05586100).

Occasional regulation at low flow by navigation dam at La Grange.

Since Jan. 17, 1900, flow has included diversion from Lake Michigan through Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal.

Suspended-sediment samples were collected by local observers generally twice weekly with additional samples collected during high runoff periods. Since February 1994, samples used to compute sediment record have been collected at upstream side Rt. 106 bridge at Florence at mile 53.8.

Accuracy of records is discussed in the annual Station Analysis archived at the USGS IL Water Science Center.
