Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Flow affected by Ridgway Reservoir since 1986. Water year 1913 has periods of constant estimated flow that fall
   short of the criteria for estimated flow discussed in the text.

Daily and longer averages for 73 water years are acceptable (some whole years and all partial years are excluded).
A water year with acceptable data is indicated by an asterisk in the time line, which spans 1874 through 1988.
