DRAINAGE AREA - 48.9 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR CA-84-1: 1983 (instantaneous maximum discharge). WDR CA-95-1: 1992, 1993.
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1969 to current year. CHEMICAL DATA: Water year 1998. SEDIMENT DATA: Water year 1998.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and concrete-lined flood-control channel. Concrete dikes formed low-water control from October 1975 to Apr. 16, 1991. Elevation of gage is 685 ft above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map.
REMARKS - Records rated good, except when estimated is considered fair. Since 1997, due to construction in area of gage, Schaefer Avenue no longer extends to the Chino Creek crossing. The Schaefer Avenue Bridge, however, remains. Flow mostly regulated by San Antonio Flood-Control Reservoir, capacity, 7,700 acre-ft. Natural streamflow affected by extensive ground-water withdrawals, diversions for power, domestic use, irrigation, and return flow from irrigated areas. Releases of imported water are made to the basin by the California Water Project at times in some years, via San Antonio Creek from Rialto Pipeline below San Antonio Dam, at a site approximately 11 mi upstream. During the current water year, the California Water Project reported releases of 21,699 acre-ft. were made into the basin.

EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 12,700 ft³/s, Feb. 27, 1983, gage height, 10.32 ft, from rating curve extended above 560 ft³/s, on basis of slope-conveyance study; no flow May 21, June 30, July 1, Oct. 30, Nov. 3, 1977.
