DRAINAGE AREA - 70 mi². from automated delineation using 10-meter National Elevation Dataset digital elevation model data dated 10/01/2006 and Watershed Boundary Dataset dated 10/01/2006, using Albers Equal-Area Projection, North American Datum 1983.
REVISIONS HISTORY - Web only: Apr. 30, 2013 through Oct. 22, 2013.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
