DRAINAGE AREA - 60.8 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - Water Data Report (WDR) 1983: Drainage area. WDR 1997: Drainage area. WDR MT-2013: Drainage area.
PERIOD OF RECORD - May 1911 to July 1912 (published as "near Browning"), June to July 1918 (staff-gage readings only), May 1919 to current season (seasonal records only). Monthly discharge only for some periods are published in Water Supply Paper 1309.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 4,240 ft, referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to June 20, 1921, nonrecording gages at several sites within 1 mi of present site at different elevations. June 20, 1921 to Mar. 19, 1997 water-stage recorder at site 0.5 mile downstream from current site at elevation 15 ft lower.
COOPERATION - This is one of a number of stations which are maintained jointly by the United States and Canada.
REMARKS - Numerous minor diversions for irrigation occur upstream from station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum peak flow from rating curve extended above 130 ft³/s, on basis of slope-area measurements of peak flow at gage heights 7.55 ft and 7.95 ft, at previous site and datum. Maximum peak stage was from backwater due to ice, determined from floodmarks at previous site, which was destroyed.
