USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 93-4076


Description, qualifying comments, and acceptable water years.

Drainage area is 1460 sq.mi.                            Datum is 1144.71 ft.
Located in hydrologic unit 09030006 at Latitude: 48:11:45N  Longitude: 093:48:25W
Station is in the state of MN (county code 071) and serviced by the MN office.
Channel slope is 1.90 feet/mile
Stream length is 114.00 miles
Mean basin elevation is 1300.00 feet above National Geodetic Vertical Datum
Percent of contributing drainage area covered by 
   Storage: 19.10%    Lakes: N.A.%        Forests: 89.00%     Glaciers: N.A.%
Soil infiltration index is 5.15 inches
Annual precipitation is 23.50 inches
Precipitation intensity is 2.30 inches/24 hour (expected on the average once each two years)
January minimum temperature is -9.00 degrees Fahrenheit
Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Winter records may be ice affected. Records prior to water year 1971 are unsuitable for analysis at less than
   monthly resolution due to minor low flow regulation by upstream plant.

Monthly and longer averages for 55 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.
