USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
07241520 NORTH CANADIAN RIVER AT BRITTON ROAD AT OKLAHOMA CITY, OK
LOCATION - Lat 35°33'56", long 97°22'01" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in SW 1/4 SW 1/4 sec.25, T.13 N., R.2 W., Oklahoma County, OK, Hydrologic Unit 11100302, on right downstream abutment of county road bridge, 3.8 mi downstream from Crutcho Creek, 4.0 mi west of Jones, and at mile 252.7.
DRAINAGE AREA - 13,688 mi² of which 3,497 mi² probably is noncontributing. 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 - WDR 2012: Drainage area.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1988 to current year.
REMARKS - 10/01/2013 - 09/30/2014: records poor. 10/01/2014 - 09/30/2015: records poor, heavily affected by wind. 10/01/2015 - 09/30/2016: records fair. 10/01/2016 - 09/30/2017: records poor, most periods heavily wind-affected. Flow regulated by Canton Lake (station 07238500) and Lake Overholser (station 07240500) where diversions are made into Lake Hefner Canal (station 07240000), and by several small dams in Oklahoma City. Low flow sustained in part by sewage effluent. Historical low lake levels at Lake Overholser impacted this site during the summer months.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum stage 24.80 ft, May 9, 1993. Maximum discharge 38,100 cfs, May 9, 1993. No flow at times. Minimum stage 6.01 ft, March 27, 2017.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - August 1988 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: October 1988 to current year pH: October 1988 to June 1991. WATER TEMPERATURE: October 1988 to current year. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: October 1988 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water quality monitor since October 1988.
REMARKS - Interruptions in record were due to malfunction of the recording instrument, excessive sand movement, and periods where the sensors were above the water that were not representative of stream conditions. Samples were collected periodically and specific conductance, pH, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, and alkalinity were determined in the field.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum 2,710 microsiemens, Sept. 6, 2001; minimum 22 microsiemens, May 26, 2001. pH: Maximum 9.1 units, June 27, 1991; minimum 6.3 units, Aug. 8, 1989. WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum 37.5°C, Aug. 7, 2003; minimum recorded, -0.5°C, Feb. 16, 2007. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum 25.0 mg/L, Dec. 20, 2000; minimum 0.2 mg/L, June 25,26,27,29, 2002, June 12, 2006.
