REMARKS - Records fair for Water Year. There are several small dams on tributaries that store water during times of storm runoff. Some records listed in the "Period of Record" for surface water may not be available electronically.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Historical flood information begins in 1905. Since that time the highest stage occurred in July 1937 (about 17 feet) and was 3 feet higher than the 1953 flood of 13.8 feet, measured at the water gap 0.6 mile above the current gage. The 1937 peak stage was pointed out by Mr. Milton Lewis at his water gap. Debris from the 1953 flood was still evident at the water gap. The peak stage of the October 1953 flood was 13.8 feet from debris on the right bank at the historical gage, located 0.8 mile upstream from the current gage. This information was verified by Mr. Tom Crest, who has lived in this vicinity since 1905. The flood of Sep 27, 1964, reached a stage of 22.64 feet with a discharge of 46,900 cfs, which was calculated using a slope-area measurement.
