During cold weather, ice effects on stage, groundwater levels, precipitation and water quality parameters at some stream-gaging stations and wells are likely. Data values reported on these pages may be significantly higher or lower than actual values. Adjustment of data for ice effects can only be done after detailed analysis. Users are encouraged to contact this office for more information on specific stream-gaging stations or wells.
This site is being affected by beaver dams downstream creating an increase in the water surface elevations. Stage values reported are believed to be reasonably accurate, but the higher stage readings may produce values of discharge that are higher than actual.
