USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 93-4076


Description, qualifying comments, and acceptable water years.

Drainage area is 526 sq.mi.                             Datum is 76.26 ft.
Located in hydrologic unit 03020102 at Latitude: 36:09:03N  Longitude: 077:41:35W
Station is in the state of NC (county code 065) and serviced by the NC office.
Channel slope is 4.50 feet/mile
Stream length is 71.20 miles
Mean basin elevation is 350.00 feet above National Geodetic Vertical Datum
Percent of contributing drainage area covered by 
   Storage: 7.00%     Lakes: 0.00%        Forests: 51.00%     Glaciers: N.A.%
Soil infiltration index is N.A. inches
Annual precipitation is 43.00 inches
Precipitation intensity is 3.10 inches/24 hour (expected on the average once each two years)
January minimum temperature is 31.00 degrees Fahrenheit
Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Records are unsuitable for analysis at less than monthly resolution due to diurnal fluctuation and minor regulation
   at low flow by mills upstream from station.  Some low flow records published between 1923 and 1928 were found to be
   unreliable and should not be used.

Monthly and longer averages for 62 water years are acceptable (all years except partial years).
A water year with acceptable data is indicated by an asterisk in the time line, which spans 1874 through 1988.
