LOCATION.--Lat 46°37'41", long 90°52'13", in SE 1/4 NW 1/4 NW 1/4 sec.21, T.48 N., R.4 E., Ashland County, Hydrologic Unit 04010300. 

PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 2016 to present. 

GAGE. --Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 601.1 ft above IGLD;

REMARKS.-- Gage-height telemeter at station. 

OPERATED IN COOPERATION WITH:

Funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative National Park Service

Great Lakes Restoration Logo National Park Service

Additional Information:

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.
