01651770 HICKEY RUN AT NATIONAL ARBORETUM AT WASHINGTON, DC
LOCATION - Lat 38°54'58.0", long 76°58'07.9" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Washington, DC, Hydrologic Unit 02070010, on left bank 340 ft downstream from New York Ave, 760 ft upstream from Hickey Ln NE bridge. Water quality data collected at site 265 ft upstream from present gage location.
DRAINAGE AREA - 1.01 mi². from automated delineation using 30-meter National Elevation Dataset, digital elevation model data, dated 2006.
REVISIONS HISTORY - https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/dv/?site_no=01651770: 2013
https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv/?site_no=01651770: 2019
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 2012 to current year.
GAGE - Water stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 16.16 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988.  October 2012 to November 2019, at site 265 ft upstream at gage datum 1 ft higher (17.16 ft above NAVD88).
REMARKS -
  • Water Year 2020: Records fair, except those above 700 ft³/s and those for estimated discharges, which are poor.
  • Water Years 2017-2019: Records poor, including those for estimated discharges.
  • Water Year 2016: Records poor, including those for estimated daily discharges.
  • Water Year 2015: Records poor. No estimated daily discharges.
  • Water Year 2014: Records poor, including those for estimated daily discharges.
  • Water Year 2013: Record accuracy statement can be found in the Annual Water Data Report.

  • U.S. Geological Survey satellite data-collection platform at station (SW).  U.S. Geological Survey water-data telemeter at station (QW).
    WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
    PERIOD OF RECORD - January 2013 to current year.
    PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: January 2013 to current year. WATER TEMPERATURE: January 2013 to current year. TURBIDITY: January 2013 to current year.
    INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor, January 2013 to current year.
    REMARKS - Turbidity values greater than 1,000 formazin nepthelometric units (FNU) exceed the instrument calibration range. Values are included in the record but are presumed to have lower precision. Missing record due to periodic instrument malfunction.
