REVISIONS HISTORY - WSP 1241: 1942 (M). WDR-US-2011: Drainage area.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - April 1938 to current year. Published as "at Caddoa" prior to October 1947. Statistical summary computed for 1949 to current year, subsequent to completion of John Martin Reservoir.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder with satellite telemetry, concrete control, and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 3,737.40 ft above NGVD of 1929. Prior to Feb. 22, 1940, at site 3 mi upstream at datum 22.83 ft higher. Feb. 22, 1940 to Feb. 4, 1943, at site 700 ft upstream at datum 3.64 ft higher. Feb. 5, 1943 to Apr. 8, 1975, at site 1.5 mi downstream at datum approximately 27.5 ft lower.
REMARKS - Water year 2014; no estimated daily discharges. Records good except for flows below 3 ft³/s, which are poor. Water year 2015; records good except for flows below 3 ft³/s, and estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Water year 2016; no estimated daily discharges. Records good except for flows below 3 ft³/s, which are poor. Water year 2017; records good except for flows below 3 ft³/s, and estimated daily discharges, which are poor.
