1911 Excerpt: ...13,540 square miles in extent, lying in the heart
of Nebraska. The Loup proper is formed by the junction of North and
Middle Loup rivers, which unite near the city of St. Paul, the
middle Loup in turn receiving the south Loup in the southwestern
part of Howard County. The principal tributaries are Beaver, Cedar,
Calamus, and Dismal creeks. A comparatively small amount of water
is diverted for irrigation, the ditches generally being small and
covering limited areas. A number of power plants are in operation
and others of considerable extent have been proposed, particularly
one near Columbus, by which it is believed that about 20,000
continuous horsepower may be developed. On Loup River the flow was
probably lowest in 1895. LOUP RIVER AT COLUMBUS, NEBR. This
station, which was established October 13, 1894, is located at the
highway bridge in the outskirts of Columbus and about 3 miles above
the mouth of the river, in sec. 25, T. 17 N., R. 1 W. The records
show the total discharge of the river at its mouth, and are
valuable in connection with power development. They show also the
remarkably uniform flow of the stream. A comparatively small amount
of water is diverted for irrigation. Records have usually been
suspended during the winter months on account of the severe ice
conditions. Measurements at this station are rough at best, owing
to the soft and constantly shifting bed and the high and uneven
velocity. Gage heights are only an approximate index of discharge,
as the swift current changes the channel very rapidly, and at least
one measurement a week would be required to give even fairly good
results. No daily discharges have been computed for 1909, as any
computation based on the data at hand would be misleading, and a
fair idea of the discharge can be obt...
