USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
LOCATION - Lat 40°49'00", long 112°06'00" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Salt Lake County, UT, Hydrologic Unit 16020204, about 7 mi downstream from Surplus Canal wasteway, 3.3 mi north of Saltair, and 7.2 mi north of Magna.
REVISIONS HISTORY - Prior to Sep 23, 2020 the datum of the gage was 4,204 ft above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map.
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1963 to September 1968, October 1971 to September 1984, May 2006 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 4,194.01 ft. above NAVD of 1988 from Level II GNSS surveys conducted on September 23, 2020. Prior to June 14, 2006, gage was located 400 feet upstream at a datum 10.00 feet higher.
REMARKS - The Goggin Drain primarily diverts Jordan River water from the Surplus Canal to the Great Salt Lake proper, rather than to Farmington Bay. Goggin Drain also collects some other natural drainage and surplus water spilled from canals in the area. Records are good except for estimated discharges which are poor and other exceptions as noted.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge, 2,340 ft³/s, Jun 20, 21, 2011, gage height 17.71 ft; minimum, no flow on several days during many years.
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1963 to September 1966, February 1972 to September 1984, May 2006 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURE: September 18, 2018 to October 2, 2019. SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: September 18, 2018 to October 2, 2019.
INSTRUMENTATION - Multiparameter probe with water temperature and specific conductance from September 2018 to October 2, 2019.
REMARKS - Quality of data for specific periods can be obtained by contacting the Utah Water Science Center.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum, 29.9°C, Jul 28, 2019; minimum, 0.5°C, Jan 4, 2019. SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum observed, 5,530 microsiemens/cm, Feb 1, 2019; minimum, 491 microsiemens/cm, June 8, 2019.
