Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Records are unsuitable for analysis at less than monthly resolution due to power plant regulation at low flow. 
   Records prior to May 1, 1937 do not meet the specified standards of accuracy. Withdrawal for water supply initiated
   in water year 1984.

Monthly and longer averages for 46 water years are acceptable (some whole years and all partial years are excluded).
