LOCATION - Lat 34°03'54", long 117°17'58" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, San Bernardino County, CA, Hydrologic Unit 18070203, in San Bernardino Grant, on left bank, 0.4 mi downstream from E Street Bridge, 0.4 mi upstream from Warm Creek, 1.2 mi downstream from San Timoteo Creek, 2.8 mi south of San Bernardino, and 26 mi downstream from Big Bear Lake.
DRAINAGE AREA - 541 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - March 1939 to September 1954, October 1966 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Elevation of gage is 940 ft above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map. Prior to Nov. 10, 1950, on right bank 0.4 mi upstream at datum 24.50 ft higher. Nov. 11, 1950, to September 1954, on both banks 0.4 mi upstream at datum 24.50 ft higher. October 1966 to September 1976, on right bank 0.4 mi upstream at datum 14.50 ft higher. October 1976 to September 1977, gage was removed for channel construction. October 1977 to Jan. 28, 1981, on right bank, 0.5 mi upstream at elevation 10 ft higher.
REMARKS - San Bernardino County Flood Control District (SBCFCD) declared growth in channel 'semi-permanent' citing environmental regulation in 2016. Flow partly regulated by Big Bear Lake (station 11049000) and, since November 1999, by Seven Oaks Flood-Control Reservoir, capacity, 145,600 acre-ft. Natural flow of stream affected by ground-water withdrawals and diversion for domestic use and irrigation upstream from station. Effluent from sewage reclamation plant 1.0 mi upstream caused sustained flow past gage from 1967 to Mar. 21, 1996. See schematic diagram of Santa Ana River Basin available from the California Water Science Center.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 35,700 ft³/s, Jan. 11, 2005, gage height, 9.04 ft, current site and datum, from rating curve extended above 5,930 ft³/s on basis of critical-depth computations; maximum gage height, 11.9 ft, Feb. 25, 1969, site and datum then in use; no flow for many days many years prior to 1967 and since Mar. 21, 1996.
