PERIOD OF RECORD, Water-Quality.-- CHEMICAL DATA: Oct. 1967 to Oct. 1996. BIOCHEMICAL DATA: Oct. 1973 to Oct. 1996. PESTICIDE DATA: Aug. 1985. RADIOCHEMICAL DATA: Mar. to June 1981. PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD, Water-Quality.-- SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Oct. 1967 to Sept. 1991. WATER TEMPERATURE: Oct. 1967 to Sept. 1991.
REVISED RECORDS - WSP 1732: Drainage area.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 304.16 ft above NGVD of 1929. May 12, 1939 to Dec. 11, 1955, at site 55 ft upstream from downstream side of bridge at same datum. Dec. 12, 1955 to Dec. 12, 1959, at downstream side of bridge at same datum. Oct. 1, 1967 to Sept. 12, 1968, nonrecording gage at downstream side of bridge at same datum.

REMARKS - Some records listed in the "Period of Record" for surface water and water quality may not be available electronically. Since Oct. 1960, at least 10% of contributing drainage area has been regulated. Flow may also be slightly affected at times by discharge from floodwater-retarding structures controlling runoff from a 9.70 mi² area in the Mill Creek drainage basin.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION - WATER YEARS 1940-1959: Maximum discharge 76,000 ft³/s Apr. 1, 1945 (gage height, 24.00 ft); maximum gage height, 24.37 ft June 8, 1943; no flow at times.
AVERAGE DISCHARGE FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION - 20 years (water years 1940-1959) prior to regulation by Lake Tawakoni, 1,054 ft³/s (763,600 acre-ft/yr).
