USGS 03271500 Great Miami River at Miamisburg OH


Click to hidestation-specific text
Station operated in cooperation with the Miami Conservancy District.
 LOCATION.-- Lat 39°38'40", long 84°17'23", in sec. 31, R.6, T.1, Montgomery
     County, Hydrologic Unit 05080002, on left bank 600 ft downstream from 
     bridge on State Highway 725 at Miamisburg, 0.3 mi downstream from Bear    
     Creek, 3.2 mi upstream from Crains Run, and at mile 66.4.
 PERIOD OF RECORD.-- March 1916 to September 1920 (published as Miami River
     at Franklin 1916-17), August 1924 to September 1935 (published as Miami 
     River near Miamisburg), October 1952 to current year (published as Miami
     River at Miamisburg 1952-62). Monthly discharge only for some periods,
     published in WSP 1305.
 REVISED RECORDS.-- WSP 743: 1929(M). WSP 1385: 1926. WSP 1908: Drainage area.
 REMARKS.-- Flood flow regulated by four retarding basins upstream from station 
     plus other reservoirs. See REMARKS for station 03270500. Recharge to the City 
     of Miamisburg wellfield is largely induced infiltration from the Great Miami 
     River. Groundwater pumpage opposite from the station is returned to the river 
     as treated wastewater 2.1 mi downstream from the station. Also, a small amount 
     of water pumped from groundwater farther upstream is diverted to the Little 
     Miami River watershed through the Montgomery County regional system. This pumpage 
     could affect low flow.
 EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.-- Flood of March 26, 1913 reached a
     discharge of 257,000 cubic feet per second, computed by Miami Conservancy
