USGS Water-Year Summary 2023
10336700 Incline Creek near Crystal Bay, NV
LOCATION - Lat 39°14'25", long 119°56'38" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in SW 1/4 NE 1/4 sec.22, T.16 N., R.18 E., Washoe County, NV, Hydrologic Unit 16050101, on right bank, 500 ft upstream from culvert on Lakeshore Boulevard, 1,000 ft upstream from mouth, just below mouth of major tributary, and 3 mi east of Crystal Bay.
DRAINAGE AREA - 6.74 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1966 to September 1975, November 1987 to current year (low flow, partial record site only, October 1966 to September 1969, October 1973 to February 1975).
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 6,246.90 ft above NGVD of 1929 and 6251.00 above NAVD of 1988.
REMARKS - No regular diversion above station. Possibly some light pumping or diversion of water for construction or irrigation. See schematic diagram of Pyramid and Winnemucca Lakes Basin available from the Nevada Water Science Center and Truckee River Basin available from the California Water Science Center.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 179 ft³/s, Jan. 2, 1997, gage height, 3.87 ft; minimum daily, 0.18 ft³/s, Sept. 1, 1999.

CHEMICAL DATA: Water years 1970-73, 1978-79, November 1987 to current year.  

WATER TEMPERATURE: Water years April 1998 to November 2000, September 2019 to current year.
TURBIDITY: Water years September 2019 to current year.

INSTRUMENTATION - Water temperature recorder April 1998 to November 2000, two times per hour.
REMARKS - In November 1987, station was incorporated into the expanded Lake Tahoe Interagency Monitoring Program to monitor tributary contributions of nutrients and sediment to Lake Tahoe. Nutrient samples were analyzed by the University of California, Davis, Tahoe Environmental Research Center (previously the Tahoe Research Group). The original hydrazine method used to determine nitrate plus nitrite concentrations (parameter codes 000631 and 000630) was found to have interferences caused by calcium and magnesium in stream water samples. The current laboratory method uses pyrophosphate to remove interferences caused by calcium and magnesium. This method has replaced the original hydrazine method as of December 2008. Parameter code 00623, filtered ammonia plus organic nitrogen (dissolved Kjeldahl nitrogen) was discontinued in April 2011. Water temperature data for September 1997 were not published but are available from the U.S. Geological Survey in Carson City, NV. Prior to October 2011, quality assurance blank samples associated with the entire Lake Tahoe Interagency Monitoring Program were listed under station numbers 103366769999 and 103367309999. Starting October 2011, quality assurance blanks are included with the station number where the blanks are processed.
