USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
LOCATION - Lat 46°16'07", long 100°15'08" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NE 1/4 SE 1/4 sec.12, T.132 N., R.77 W., Emmons County, ND, Hydrologic Unit 10130104, on left bank 25 ft upstream from bridge on county road, 0.7 mi west of Linton, and 0.5 mi downstream from Spring Creek.
DRAINAGE AREA - 765 mi² of which 100 mi² probably is noncontributing.
PERIOD OF RECORD - DAILY DISCHARGE--October 1989 to current year. Records for August 1949 to September 1989 at site 1.5 mi upstream published as "at Linton, ND" (station 06354500) are not equivalent because of difference in drainage area.

PERIOD OF RECORD.--DAILY GAGE HEIGHT--October 2000 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and artificial control. Datum of gage is 1683.57 ft above NAVD88. In October 2019, datum was converted to NAVD88 datum using the National Geodetic Surveys VDATUM transformation tool. Prior to conversion to NAVD88 datum was published as 1,682.26 ft above NGVD29.  Current datum was determined from a GPS level survey in May, 2012. Prior to this date, the datum of the gage was noted as 1,690 ft above NGVD29, from topographic map.
REMARKS - Accuracy of records for water years prior to 2014 are noted in the individual Annual Data Reports for those water years. For water years 2014 onward, records good except for estimated discharges, which are poor, unless otherwise noted.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum peak flow, 14,000 ft³/s, March 24, 2009, from rating curve extended above 8,000 ft³/s on basis of indirect measurement. Maximum peak stage, 18.96 ft, March 24, 2009, from flood mark.
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water year 1972 to current year.
