DRAINAGE AREA - 2,685 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - Oct. 1976 to current year. PERIOD OF RECORD, Water-Quality.-- CHEMICAL DATA: Oct. 1972 to Dec. 1994. BIOCHEMICAL DATA: Oct. 1972 to Aug. 1993. BIOLOGICAL DATA: Aug. 1993. PESTICIDE DATA: July 1993 to June 1994. RADIOCHEMICAL DATA: Jan. to July 1981. SEDIMENT DATA: Apr. 1993 to Dec. 1994. PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD, Water-Quality.-- SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Oct. 1976 to Sept. 2002. WATER TEMPERATURE: Oct. 1976 to Sept. 2002. pH: Oct. 1976 to Sept. 2002. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Oct. 1976 to Sept. 2002.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and concrete control. Datum of gage is 478.70 ft above NGVD of 1929; 478.78 ft above NAVD of 1988. Satellite telemeter at station.
REMARKS - Some records listed in the "Period of Record" for surface water and water quality may not be available electronically. Since installation of gage, at least 10% of contributing drainage area has been regulated. At times, flow is sustained by releases from the flood-detention pool of Benbrook Lake. There are many diversions upstream from this station for municipal, industrial, and other uses.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum stage since at least 1866 probably occurred in May 1949 (stage and discharge unknown). Maximum stages have been affected by levee construction, levee breaks, and channel rectification.
