GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 340.00 ft above NGVD of 1929 and 330.59 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 affected by discharge from floodwater-retarding structures in the drainage basin above this station. No known diversions. No flow at times.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood information for the next downstream station, Chambers Creek near Corsicana, station (08064500) indicates that the maximum stage since at least 1870 occurred in Aug. 1887, and that other significant floods occurred in Dec. 1913, May 1944, and May 1958. Stages for these floods are unknown, but over the years a levee system has been developed along the main channel to limit cropland flooding.
