    Click to hidestation-specific text

    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.

    LOCATION.--Lat 38°54'20.8", long 75°30'45.9", Kent County, DE, Hydrologic Unit 02040207, 
       on left bank 15 ft upstream from culverts on State Highway 384, 0.8 mi south of Houston,
