DRAINAGE AREA - 358 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.
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 2001 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. The current datum in use is 0.42 NAVD88. The current datum was obtained by a GNSS Level II REF FRAME: NAD_83(2011)(EPOCH:2010.0000) ITRF2014 (EPOCH:2022.7033)[NAVD88 (Computed using GEOID18)] Tied to RM-2. Prior to 10/01/2022 datum in use was 0.00 NGVD29.

Quality of data for all periods can be obtained by contacting the Oklahoma-Texas Water Science Center.

All estimated records are considered poor unless noted otherwise.

Reservoir is formed by a concrete dam with an uncontrolled spillway. Storage began in 1952. At normal pool elevation 778.00 ft, the capacity is 75,900 acre-ft.

Malfunctioning equipment resulted in the maximum elevation being undetermined. Lake Eucha Dam Operator recorded the peak at an elevation of 782.64 from staff reading on April 29, 2017, which would have produced a contents of 90,940 acre-ft. 

Maximum published contents, 89,000 acre-ft, Apr. 29, 2017, elevation 782.16 ft.

EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of August 14, 1961, reached a stage of 781.4 NGVD, from City of Tulsa readings.
