  • Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to protect life and property on a case-by-case basis. The health and safety of the public and our employees are our highest priorities, and we continue to follow guidance from the White House, the CDC, and state and local authorities.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
06892350 KANSAS RIVER AT DESOTO, KS
LOCATION - Lat 38°59'00", long 94°57'52" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NE 1/4 SE 1/4 SE 1/4 sec.28, T.12 S., R.22 E., Leavenworth County, KS, Hydrologic Unit 10270104, on right bank at downstream side of bridge on county highway, north edge of DeSoto, 0.4 mi upstream from Kill Creek, and at mile 31.0.
DRAINAGE AREA - 59,756 mi². of which a large area is noncontributing.
REVISIONS HISTORY - WSP 806: Drainage area.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - July 1917 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods published in WSP 1310. Prior to October 1973, published as "at Bonner Springs."
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 753.87 ft above NGVD of 1929. July 9, 1917, to Apr. 23, 1934, nonrecording gage; Apr. 24, 1934, to Nov. 25, 1960, water-stage recorder at site 9.7 mi downstream at datum 11.81 ft lower; Nov. 26, 1960, to Feb. 9, 1961, nonrecording gage; Feb. 10, 1961, to Sept. 30, 1971, water-stage recorder at site 10.2 mi downstream at datum 17.81 ft lower; and Oct. 1, 1971, to Sept. 30, 1973, at site 10.2 mi downstream at datum 22.81 ft lower. Lowered gage datum 5.0 ft Sept. 30, 1996, to 753.87 ft.
REMARKS - Natural flow affected by lakes and reservoirs in Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas, and by numerous diversions upstream from station. Diurnal fluctuations caused by hydroelectric plant 20.8 mi upstream; since storage capacity is small, daily flows are not affected appreciably. Satellite telemeter at station.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum stage known since at least 1844, that of July 13, 1951.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water years 1975-81, 2000-05. August 2012 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: October 1974 to September 1981, June 1999 to September 2005, August 2012 to June 2014 (discontinued). SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE (EXO2): June 2014 to current year. pH: June 1999 to September 2005, August 2012 to June 2014 (discontinued). pH (EXO2): June 2014 to current year. WATER TEMPERATURE: October 1974 to September 1981, June 1999 to September 2005, August 2012 to June 2014 (discontinued). WATER TEMPERATURE (EXO2): June 2014 to current year. DISSOLVED OXYGEN (Lumin): June 1999 to September 2005, August 2012 to June 2014 (discontinued). DISSOLVED OXYGEN (EXO2): June 2014 to current year.

TURBIDITY (EXO2): June 2014 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Mulitparameter water-quality monitor.
REMARKS - Interruptions in record are due to ice conditions, malfunction of the recording instrument or sensors, or during days of no streamflow. Instruments used to measure turbidity conform to ISO 7027 standards and were made using Yellow Springs Instrument (YSI) 6136 sensor.
