USGS Water-Year Summary 2023
07380249 Caminada Pass NW of Grand Isle, LA
LOCATION - Lat 29°13'52.9", long 90°02'54.7" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Jefferson Parish, LA, Hydrologic Unit 08090301, located on top of 6ftx6ft platform approximately 1.5 miles north of Caminada Pass Bridge.
PERIOD OF RECORD - November 2017 to present.
GAGE - Water level recorder consist of a non-contact water stage recorder housed in aluminum shelter approximately 10ft above the water surface.

Datum of gage is 1.28ft below NAVD88 (GEOID12B) EPOCH 2010.0000.

COOPERATION - Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority
REMARKS - Site affected by wind and tide. Satellite telemetry at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum recorded gage height, 9.71ft, Aug 29, 2021, Hurricane Ida. Minimum recorded gage height, 0.50ft, Jan 17, 2018.
PERIOD OF RECORD - November 2017 to present.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water quality multiprobe collecting water temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, pH, cholorphyll, and turbidity.

Turbidity data considered poor due to severe biofouling at the site location and extreme wind events causing significant turbulence. 

Extremes may have been exceeded during period of missing record due to Hurricane Ida, 2021.

EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum recorded, 35.5°C, Aug 13, 2023; minimum recorded, 4.2°C, Jan 4, 2018. SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum recorded, 57800 microsiemens/cm, Feb 4, 2021; minimum recorded, 2800 microsiemens/cm, May 28, 2020. SALINITY: Maximum recorded, 39 ppt, Feb 4, 2021; minimum recorded, 1.4 ppt, on May 28, 2020. PH: Maximum recorded, 9.1 std units, Jan. 08, 2019; minimum recorded std units, 6.6, Jun 18, 2019. TURBIDITY: Maximum recorded, 500 FNU, Jul 7, 2020; minimum recorded, <1 FNU, Nov 1, 2017 and Jan 18, 2023. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum recorded,  17.4 mg/L, Jul 18, 2019; minimum recorded, 0.6 mg/L, May 7, 2022.
