SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - April 1, 1963 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and satellite telemetry at station. Datum of gage is 105.5 ft. (32.2 m) above Puerto Rico Vertical Datum of 2002 (PRVD02). Prior to October 30, 1975, at site 600 ft. (180 m) upstream, at same datum. Elevation or datum was previously reported as 164 ft. (50 m) above mean sea level and NGVD 29 and was established via topographic map and a new GNSS survey was used to establish a PRVD02 datum because the topographic datum did not meet the new accuracy requirements.
REMARKS - Trans basin diversion (except during floods) to Río Yauco basin for hydroelectric power and irrigation plant above Lago Guayo, Lago Yahuecas, and Lago Prieto combined useable storage 17,300 acre-ft (21.3 hm3). Limited storm runoff is contributed to basin by 3.5 mi² (9.1 km2) above Río Toro Diversion dam.
CLIMATOLOGICAL RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - June 2018 to current year.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - January 10, 1963 to current year.
