Prior to 1968, published as "Nolands River at Blum". PERIOD OF RECORD, Water-Quality.-- CHEMICAL DATA: Jan. 1962 to Aug. 1981, Feb. 1999 to Aug. 2004. BIOCHEMICAL DATA: Jan. 1962 to Aug. 2004. PESTICIDE DATA: Aug. 1970 to June 1972. RADIOCHEMICAL DATA: Apr. to June 1981, Feb. 1999 to Aug. 2004.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 551.48 ft above NGVD of 1929. July 29, 1924, to Sept. 30, 1925, and Nov. 14, 1947, to May 28, 1949, nonrecording gage at railway bridge (now abandoned) 0.5 mi upstream at datum 5.00 ft higher.
