DRAINAGE AREA - 186 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1987 to current year (operated as a low-flow station only). Unpublished records for water years 1978-87 available in files of the U.S. Geological Survey. Fragmentary records for water year 1977 available in files of Pacific Gas and Electric Co.
GAGE - Non-recording gage and metal Alaskan fishladder. Discharge computed by subtracting 3 ft³/s from the flow recorded below Wildcat Diversion Dam (station 11376160). Elevation of gage is 1,400 ft above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map.
COOPERATION - Records were collected by Pacific Gas and Electric Co., under general supervision of the U.S. Geological Survey, in connection with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission project no. 1121.
REMARKS - This station records fishwater release only. Prior to water year 1996 flow computed to 7.2 ft³/s. The minimum release requirement is 3.0 ft³/s at all times. From 1996-2015, flow is computed to 50 ft³/s. Beginning 2016, flow is computed to 297 ft³/s.
