Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Records were provided by the Virginia Water Control Board. Records are unsuitable for analysis at less than monthly
   analysis due to occasional diurnal fluctuations induced by upstream plant.

A water year with acceptable data is indicated by an asterisk in the time line, which spans 1874 through 1988.
