Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
07277700 HICKAHALA CREEK NEAR SENATOBIA, MS
LOCATION - Lat 34°37'55", long 89°55'28" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, in SE 1/4 NW 1/4 sec.22, T.5 S., R.7 W., Tate County, MS, Hydrologic Unit 08030204, Chickasaw Meridian, on left bank at downstream side of bridge on county road, 1.7 mi east of Senatobia, 1.5 mi upstream from mouth, and 0.9 mi downstream from Basket Creek.
DRAINAGE AREA - 121 mi².
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - February 1986 to 2011 as a continuous-record gaging station. October 2012 to current year, crest-stage gage.
GAGE - Crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 233.07 ft (NAVD 88). September 4, 1942, to February 6, 1986, discharge measurements and gage height record at same site and datum in files of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District. Automatic pumping sediment sampler February 1986 to 2011.
REMARKS - As the number of streams on which streamflow information is likely to be desired far exceeds the number of stream-gaging stations feasible to operate at one time, the Geological Survey collects limited streamflow data at sites other than stream-gaging stations. When limited streamflow data are collected on a systematic basis over a period of years for use in hydrologic analyses, the site at which the data are collected is called a partial-record station. Data collected at these partial-record stations are usable in low-flow or floodflow analyses, depending on the type of data collected. The following table contains annual maximum discharges for crest-stage stations. A crest-stage gage is a device that will register the peak stage occurring between inspections of the gage. A stage-discharge relation for each gage is developed from current meter or indirect measurements of peak flow. The date of the maximum discharge is not always certain but is usually determined by comparison with nearby continuous-record stations, weather records, or local inquiry. Only the maximum discharge for each water year is given. Information on some lower floods may have been obtained, but is not published herein. The years given in the period of record represent water years for which the annual maximum has been determined.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of June 22, 1947, reached a stage of 20.6 ft, from flood mark (from information by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers).
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 19,500 ft³/s, Apr. 27, 2011, maximum gage height, 19.91 ft, Feb. 3, 1990.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water years 1975, 1986 to 2011.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - DISSOLVED OXYGEN: February 1986 to September 1989. pH: February 1986 to September 1989. SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: February 1986 to September 1989. WATER TEMPERATURE: February 1986 to September 1989. SUSPENDED SEDIMENT CONCENTRATION: February 1986 to September 2003. SUSPENDED SEDIMENT DISCHARGE: February 1986 to September 2003.
INSTRUMENTATION - Automatic pumping sediment sampler from February 1986 through September 2012.
REMARKS - Unpublished records of daily specific conductance, pH, water temperature, and dissolved oxygen during selected storm events are available in files of District office.
