11467000 Russian River at Hacienda Bridge near Guerneville, CA
LOCATION - Lat 38°30'31", long 122°55'36" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NE 1/4 SE 1/4 sec.26, T.8 N., R.10 W., Sonoma County, CA, Hydrologic Unit 18010110, on right bank, at downstream side of Hacienda Bridge, 0.1 mi upstream from Hobson Creek, and 3.8 mi east of Guerneville.
DRAINAGE AREA - 1,338 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WSP 1395: Drainage area at former site. WSP 1929: Drainage area.
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1939 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods, published in WSP 1315-B. Published as "at Guerneville," prior to October 1954, and as "near Guerneville," October 1954 to September 2017. 
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 20.14 ft above NGVD of 1929. Prior to Oct. 1, 1954, nonrecording gage at bridge 5.3 mi downstream at datum 8.58 ft lower. Oct. 1, 1954, to Oct. 23, 1974, at site 0.7 mi downstream at datum 2.75 ft lower. Supplementary water-stage recorder 2.1 mi downstream used during periods of low flow, 1948-54.
REMARKS - Flow regulated by Lake Mendocino 77 mi upstream, beginning November 1958, and by Lake Sonoma 26 mi upstream, beginning October 1983. Many diversions upstream from station for irrigation of about 29,000 acres.
