This is a National Water Conditions station.
Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Records are unsuitable for analysis at less than monthly resolution due to affects of upstream reservoirs as well
   as GW pumpage around Columbus.  Several months in the 1930's have constant daily flow values indicative of
   estimated daily values for that month.

Monthly and longer averages for 58 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.
