Gage heights and discharge measurements,
August to October 1903 and August 1909 to April 1914, and twice-daily
figures of discharge for January 1911 to December 1912 (which do not
represent daily mean discharges because of diurnal fluctuation) are
published in WSP 97, 261, 321, 351, and 381. July 1937 to current year.
