DRAINAGE AREA - 184 mi².
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - March 1948 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 719.86 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to July 24, 1957, nonrecording gage at site 50 ft downstream at same datum; July 24, 1957, to Apr. 28, 1977, water-stage recorder; Apr. 29, 1977, to May 10, 1979, nonrecording gage; May 11, 1979, to Sept. 12, 1983, water-stage recorder at site 50 ft upstream at present datum.
REMARKS - Accuracy of records is discussed in the annual Station Analysis archived at the USGS MO Water Science Center.  
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: July 2005 to current year. pH: July 2005 to current year. WATER TEMPERATURE: July 2005 to current year. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: July 2005 to current year. TURBIDITY: July 2005 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor operated since July 2005. U.S.G.S. satellite telemeter at station.
REMARKS -

Interruptions or periods of missing record may be due to instrument failure, ice conditions, no flow conditions, or data corrections exceeding allowable criteria, which were deleted.

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: For Water Year 2017, records are rated excellent except for the following periods: May 5, 14, 30, Jul. 6-10, Aug. 26 - Sept. 1, rated good.

pH: For Water Year 2017, records are rated excellent except for the following periods: Oct. 3 - Nov. 18, May 24-30, Sept. 1-30, rated good.

WATER TEMPERATURE: For Water Year 2017, records are rated excellent.

DISSOLVED OXYGEN: For Water Year 2017, records are rated excellent.

TURBIDITY: For Water Year 2017, records are rated excellent except for the following periods: May 21-30, rated fair; Oct. 7-11, Nov. 21-22, May 19-20, Aug. 23, 26 - Sep. 1, rated poor.

As of July 22, 2015, turbidity data collected using YSI EXO2 sensors (previously collected using YSI 6136 6-series sensors). Note that extreme values recorded using YSI EXO2 sensors may exceed those previously recorded using YSI 6136 sensors. Manufacturer specifications of range and accuracy for both sensor models are as follows: YSI 6136: 0 to 1000 FNU, ±2% of the reading or 0.3 NTU (whichever is greater). YSI EXO2: 0 to 999 FNU: 0.3 FNU or ±2% of reading (whichever is greater); 1000 to 4000 FNU: ±5% of reading.
