  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2023
LOCATION - Lat 44°29'28", long 106°10'38" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in NE 1/4 SW 1/4 SW 1/4 sec.07, T.52 N., R.77 W., Johnson County, WY, Hydrologic Unit 10090205, on left bank 1.1 mi upstream from Jewell Draw, 5.0 mi upstream from mouth, and 11 mi south of Arvada.
DRAINAGE AREA - 937 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - April 1963 to September 1970, October 1977 to September 1981, October 2000 to August 5, 2014 (discontinued).
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Elevation of gage is 3,780 ft above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map. U.S. Geological Survey data collection platform with satellite telemetry at station.
REMARKS - 10-01-2013 to 08-05-2014: Records good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Diversions for irrigation upstream from station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum peak flow on basis of slope-area indirect measurement.
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water years 1967 to current water year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: July 2001 to July 9, 2014 (seasonal) (discontinued). WATER TEMPERATURE: July 2001 to July 9, 2014 (seasonal) (discontinued).
INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor for specific conductance and water temperature.
REMARKS - Specific conductance records are excellent except those for October 11-24, October 31 to November 6, April 5-9, 29, 30, June 4-12, and July 2-9, which are good; May 3, which are fair; and May 2-5 and June 23, which are poor. Water temperature records are excellent except those for October 9-24, May 15-19, which are good. Maximum and minimum recorded values in the EXTREMES paragraphs may have occurred during days of partial record and may not appear in the daily values tables.
