PERIOD OF RECORD - April 1951 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 6,060 ft above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map. U.S. Geological Survey data collection platform with satellite telemetry at station.
REMARKS - Some regulation by Fontenelle Reservoir since August 1963. Natural flow of stream affected by transbasin diversions, storage reservoirs, power generation, and diversions for irrigation upstream from station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge due to emergency release from Fontenelle Reservoir.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION - Maximum discharge observed at site 1.5 mi upstream.
