DRAINAGE AREA - 3,810 mi². approximately, including 26.2 mi² in closed basin of Crater Lake.
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1961 to current year (Link River only). Records for combined flows (river and Keno Canal) available for period May 1904 to September 1983 under station 11507501.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 4,083.71 ft above NGVD of 1929 or 4,085.50 ft above U.S. Bureau of Reclamation datum. Prior to Sept. 14, 1912, water-stage recorder or nonrecording gage at several sites within 0.5 mi of present site at various datums.
