    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°16'48.1", long 76°00'52.4", Kent County, Hydrologic Unit 02060002, 
       on right bank 200 ft upstream from highway bridge, 2.0 mi southwest of Kennedyville, and 4.5 mi 
       upstream from mouth.

       gage height, 15.03 ft; minimum discharge, 0.05 ft3/s, Aug. 16, 20, 2008, as a result of irrigation.
