PERIOD OF RECORD - July 1929 to September 1958, October 1966 to September 1995, October 2001 to current year. Gage height and discharge records at this site from 1964 to 1975 are in reports of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Prior to Oct. 1990 published as "at Obion" (07026000).
GAGE - Data collection platform.  Datum of gage is 244.37 ft above NAVD of 1988, (Reference Frame NAD_83 (2011) (EPOCH:2010.0000) GEOID18). 

Prior to April 24, 2024, the datum of gage was assumed to be 245.26 ft NAVD of 1988.  However, was never updated in the Monitor Location Registry.
