USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 93-4076


Description, qualifying comments, and acceptable water years.

Channel slope is 2.30 feet/mile
Stream length is 124.00 miles
Mean basin elevation is 1520.00 feet above National Geodetic Vertical Datum

   Storage: 0.30%     Lakes: N.A.%        Forests: 1.28%      Glaciers: N.A.%
Soil infiltration index is 2.58 inches
Annual precipitation is 30.50 inches
Precipitation intensity is 3.30 inches/24 hour (expected on the average once each two years)
January minimum temperature is 21.00 degrees Fahrenheit
Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Since 1939, a large well field taps the aquifer which is hydraulically connected with the river. This should have
   been affecting flow, but the effect has not been seen in the flow record.

Daily and longer averages for 66 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.
