Data collected by the MD-DE-DC USGS Water Science Center are reported in Eastern Standard Time (EST) year-round.

Updated April 1, 2016: USGS streamflow monitoring will soon be discontinued at the following sites:
  • 01490200 FARM CREEK NEAR TODDVILLE, MD (2015 to present) Data collection has been discontinued
  • 01487150 BUCKS BRANCH NEAR ATLANTA, DE (2014 to present) Data collection discontinues July 1, 2016
Currently, data collection activities at these sites (map) are funded jointly by the USGS and partner agencies through the USGS Cooperative Water Program. Lack of partner funding for these sites will result in discontinuation of all monitoring activities. Questions or concerns can be directed to Jon Dillow (jjdillow@usgs.gov; 443-498-5524).

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 effects. 
   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.
COOPERATION.--Funding for the operation of this station is provided by the Delaware Geological Survey
