PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1992 to current year.

GAGE.--Water-stage recorder for Sheyenne River above Sheyenne River Diversion near Horace (station 05059300) is used to obtain
   stage record for this station. Datum of gage is 890 ft above sea level.

REMARKS.--Records fair. The records are for the flow that is diverted from the Sheyenne River at this location. When flows are
   greater than about 1,000 ft3/s, at Sheyenne River above Sheyenne River Diversion near Horace (05059300), diversions are made
   in order to control flood discharges downstream. The diverted flow returns to the Sheyenne River main channel at a location
   about 13 mi downstream, below the city of West Fargo. See Sheyenne River Diversion at West Fargo (station 05059480) for
   return flows.
