REMARKS - At least 10% of contributing drainage area is regulated. At times flow is affected by discharge from floodwater-retarding structures controlling runoff from 202 mi² in the North Bosque River and Green Creek drainage basins, in addition to several municipal withdrawal and wastewater effluent discharge. No flow at times. Some records listed in the "Period of Record" for surface water and water quality may not be available electronically.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of May 9, 1922, reached a stage of about 32 ft, from information by local residents.
