USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
261543080495000 L28 CANAL ABOVE S-140 NEAR CLEWISTON, FL

PERIOD OF RECORD - February 1997 to current year.
GAGE - Satellite data collection platform with water-stage shaft encoder and acoustic Doppler velocity meter (ADVM). Datum of gage is National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929.
COOPERATION - Seminole Tribe of Florida and USGS Greater Everglades Priority Ecosystems Science.
REMARKS - Records fair except for discharge below 100 cfs daily discharges, which are poor. Flow affected by G-89 and U.S. Sugar Outfall (USSO) culvert structures upstream and pump structure S-140 downstream. Positive flow is to the south. Discharge computed from continuous velocity record obtained from acoustic velocity meter and relations between stage vs. area and index velocity vs. mean channel velocity.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum gage height, 12.58 ft June 10, 2017 (Revised); minimum, 7.84 ft Mar. 7, 2002.
