    PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

    Click to hidestation-specific text

    The stream gaging location has changed. The gage is now located approximately 500 ft upstream at the Route 6 bridge. The gage datum has not changed, so gage height values can be compared to those from the old location. However because of specific channel characteristics, gage height values at the new location will tend to be higher than those at the old location by approximately 0.50 to 0.75 ft. A new rating is being developed to account for the higher gage height values from the new location.
