REMARKS - This station is regulated by the Lake Junction dam approximately 3.31mi. upstream on the South Llano River. This dam is located 0.18mi. upstream of the confluence of the N. Llano River and the S. Llano River which forms the Llano River. This dam was built in January of 1964. There are diversions above station for irrigation.
