USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
073802514 Barataria Waterway at Champagne Bay nr Grand Isle
LOCATION - Lat 29°20'01.0", long 89°59'18.6" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Jefferson Parish, LA, Hydrologic Unit 08090301, located on top of 6ftx6ft platform approximately 5.2 miles NNW of NOAA Grand Isle, LA tidal station
REVISIONS HISTORY - Specific conductance data for Mar 11, 2019 was edited on Sep 19, 2019 to reflect actual values; salinity data is also affected for this time period. 
PERIOD OF RECORD - November 2017 to present.
GAGE - Water level recorder consist of a non-contact water stage recorder housed in an aluminum shelter approximately 15ft above water level. Datum of gage is 1.90ft 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, 6.47ft, on Jul 12, 2019; Hurricane Barry. Minimum recorded gage height on 0.67ft, Jan 17 2018.
PERIOD OF RECORD - November 2017 to present
INSTRUMENTATION - Water quality multiprobe collecting water temperature,  specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, pH, chlorophyll, and turbidity.
REMARKS - Turbidity data considered poor due to severe biofouling at the site location and extreme wind events causing significant turbulence.
