For water years 2014 onward, records good except those for June 15 - 30, 2014, May 11 to June 14, 2015, Aug. 12 - 17, 2016, and June 9 to Oct. 19, 2020, which are fair and those for estimated discharges, which are poor. Satellite data-collection platform at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Lowest annual mean, 0.00 ft³/s, occurred in 1959, 1988, and 1990. Minimum daily discharge, 0.00 ft³/s, Oct. 1, 1956, no flow for long periods in most years.
