USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
11274550 San Joaquin River near Crows Landing, CA
LOCATION - Lat 37°25'55.88", long 121°00'48.04" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, in NE 1/4 NE 1/4 sec.07, T.6 S., R.9 E., Stanislaus County, CA, Hydrologic Unit 18040002, on right bank, 150 ft downstream from bridge on Crows Landing Road, 350 ft west of South Carpenter Road, and 4.3 mi northeast of Crows Landing.
DRAINAGE AREA - 9,694 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1995 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder with an electronic crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 0.00 ft above NGVD of 1929 and 2.58 ft above NAVD of 1988.
REMARKS - Natural flow of stream affected by storage reservoirs, ground-water withdrawals, diversions for irrigation, and imported water; low flows consist mainly of return water from irrigated areas.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 38,000 ft³/s, Jan. 28, 1997, gage height, 59.23 ft, from rating curve extended above 32,100 ft³/s; minimum daily, 7.5 ft³/s, Aug. 6, 2015.

CHEMICAL DATA: Water years January 1962 to June 1966,  July 2000 to November 2001, 2014-2017.

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Water years January 1996 to current year.
WATER TEMPERATURE: Water years January 1996 to current year.

INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor since January 1996.
REMARKS - Specific conductance and water temperature values are affected by irrigation return flow.
Specific conductance records for water years 2016, 2015 and 2014 rated excellent except for some periods, which range from good to poor.
Water temperature records for 2016 water year rated excellent. 2015 and 2014 water years rated excellent except for some periods, which are rated good to poor.
