  • Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown.

During the winter, river stage may be significantly affected by backwater from ice, resulting in incorrect discharge data. Consequently, discharge data may not be displayed during periods of ice effect.

LOCATION.--Lat 45°34'46", long 87°47'13", in NE 1/4 sec.29, T.37 N., R.28 W., Menominee County MI , Hydrologic Unit 04030108, on left bank 40 ft. downstream from County Trunk Z bridge, 0.9 mi. downstream from Pemene Cr. 3.9 mi. west of Nathan, MI, 10.6 mi southeast of Pembine and at mile 64.3.

DRAINAGE AREA.--3,140 square miles.

PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1949 to present. Published as "near Pembine" (04066000) prior to August 1982. Monthly discharges for some periods published in WSP 1307.

GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 740 ft above NAVD88, from topographic map. Oct. 1949 to Oct. 27, 1972, water-stage recorder at site 1.0 mi upstream at elevation 745, from river profile map, and Oct. 28, 1972 to August 1982, water-stage recorder at site 1.5 mi upstream at elevation 770 from river profile map.

REMARKS.--Flow regulated by powerplants and by Michigamme Reservoir, capacity 119,950 acre-ft, and by Peavy Pond, capacity 33,860 acre-ft, on the Michigamme River and by smaller reservoirs upstream of gage. Gage-height telemeter at station.

Discharge values displayed at this site are often affected by ice in the winter, which leads to increased uncertainty. Click HERE for more info.

The precipitation data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 30 days. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least annually, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality-assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
