Datum of gage changed from NGVD 1929 to NAVD 1988, 2001 adjustment, on Oct. 1, 2016. New datum is 0.296 ft below previous datum.

Data are tidally affected -- Astronomical tides cause significant cycles of approximately 24.84 hours at this site. Because a different portion of the 24.84-hour tidal cycle is averaged in successive daily (24-hour) computations, a systematic secondary oscillation, unrelated to basin hydrology and having a period of about two weeks may be apparent in daily data.
This station managed by the Houston Field Unit.
