SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - April 1941 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and concrete control. Datum of gage is 1,165.49 ft above NGVD of 1929 (levels by U.S. Corps of Engineers). April 1941 to June 11, 1941, nonrecording gage, and June 11, 1941, to Jan. 22, 1957, water-stage recorder, at sites 0.8 mi downstream at different datum.

REMARKS - Some regulation at diversion dam 200 ft upstream from station where water is diverted into Yellowhawk and Garrison Creeks for stock and irrigation. Since Nov. 19, 1941, water has been diverted 1.0 mi upstream into Mill Creek Reservoir for flood control with release of stored water after flood into Russell Creek, and is also diverted as required to replenish losses from seepage and evaporation from small recreation pool maintained in the reservoir. City of Walla Walla diverts water for municipal supply about 11 mi upstream. Other small diversions upstream from station for irrigation.
