Comments and qualifications on the data:
   This is a small coastal stream the records of which are often poor.  It is included because it is the northern-most
   gage in Alaska.  Most of the flow occurs in a short 10-15 day June snowmelt period.  The records might not be
   representative of anything else than the immediate coastal area. No flow during winter months.

Daily and longer averages for 17 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.
