SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Oct 1897 to current year. Prior to Aug 1928 monthly discharge only published in WSP 1310. Gage-height records 1873-99 collected at site 480 ft downstream are contained in reports of Missouri River Commission; since 1900 in reports of the National Weather Service.
REVISED RECORDS - WDR MO-76-1: Drainage area.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 481.50 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to Sep 26, 1930, nonrecording gage at site 480 ft downstream at datum 0.07 ft lower; Sep 26, 1930, to Mar 27, 1932, nonrecording gage; Mar 28, 1932, to Jun 12, 1945, water-stage recorder; Jun 13, 1945, to Apr 2, 1946, May 13 to Sep 30, 1978, nonrecording gage at present site and datum.
REMARKS - Accuracy of records is discussed in the annual Station Analysis archived at the USGS MO Water Science Center.  Regulation from many upstream reservoirs since 1958.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of June 1844 reached a stage of 35.5 ft, discharge, about 700,000 ft³/s, computed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
