    PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

    Click to hidestation-specific text

    This site is affected by storm tides which increase stream water levels at the gage. Stage values reported are believed to be reasonably accurate, but the higher stage readings may produce estimates of discharge that are higher than actual.

    LOCATION.--Lat 39°09'49.4", long 75°31'08.7", Kent County, Hydrologic Unit 02040207, on left bank
       150 ft upstream from Division Street Bridge in Dover, 1,950 ft downstream from Silver Lake, and
       12.5 mi upstream from mouth.
    DRAINAGE AREA.--31.9 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--January 1958 to current year.
    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder, concrete control and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is -0.77 ft above
       North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to June 1973, at gage datum 0.50 ft higher.
    REMARKS.--Flow affected by Silver Lake.  Flow occasionally affected by tide and wind effect. 
       U.S. Geological Survey satellite data-collection platform at station. Water-quality records for some prior 
       periods have been collected at this location. 
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 2,390 ft3/s, Aug. 28, 2011,
       gage height, 11.72 ft; minimum  discharge, 0.0 ft3/s, no flow at times in 1959, 1961, and 1962.
