 LOCATION.-- Lat 39°52'28", long 84°09'43", Montgomery County, OH, Hydrologic 
     Unit 05080001, on right upstream face of Taylorsville Dam, 0.8 mi north of 
     Taylorsville, 2.1 mi east of Vandalia, 9.5 mi upstream from Stillwater River, and 
     at mile 90.9.
 DRAINAGE AREA.-- 1,149 mi2.
 PERIOD OF RECORD.--January 1914 to September 1917 (published as Miami River at Tadmor), 
     October 1921 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods, published in 
     WSP 1305. Gage-height records collected at site at Tadmor, January 1914 to July 1920, 
     are contained in reports of the National Weather Service
 REVISED RECORDS.-- WSP 743: 1924(M). WSP 853: 1930, 1937. WSP 923: 1922-24. WSP 1385: 1916.

 REMARKS.-- Flood flow regulated by Taylorsville retarding basin and by Lockington retarding 
     basin on Loramie Creek 30.1 mi upstream from station beginning in 1921. Low and medium 
     flow slightly regulated by Indian Lake, 68 mi upstream from station, and by Lake Loramie 
     51 mi upstream from station on Loramie Creek; combined capacity, 58,900 acre-ft. Stage 
     affected by backwater from Taylorsville Dam. Recharge to the wellfield for the cities of 
     Tipp City and Vandalia is largely induced infiltration from the Great Miami River. 
     Groundwater pumpage upstream from the station is returned to the river as treated wastewater 
     4.6 mi downstream from the station and could affect low flow.
 EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Flood on Mar. 25, 1913, reached a stage of 22.1 ft relative 
     to a datum of 760.0 ft COE 1912, discharge 127,000 ft3/s, computed by Miami
