SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Discharge records: March 1993 to current year. Records for November 1928 to March 1953 at site 2.7 mi upstream published as "near Lincoln" (station 01074500) are not equivalent because of difference in drainage areas.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 820.72 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to August 17, 2001, at datum 5.00 ft higher. From April 10, 2017 to Jun 27, 2019, at location 1300 ft upstream and at datum of 835 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988, from topographic map.
