USGS Current Water Data for Pennsylvania
During cold weather, stage and discharge values may be affected by ice at some streamgages. Streamgages experiencing ice conditions will have the discharge record temporarily disabled to prevent the display of erroneous discharge values. Display of discharge record will resume when it is determined that ice conditions are no longer present. Adjustment of data affected by ice can only be done after detailed analysis.
The colored dots on this map depict streamflow conditions as a percentile, which is computed from the period of record for the current day of the year. Only stations with at least 30 years of record are used.
The gray circles indicate other stations that were not ranked in percentiles either because they have fewer than 30 years of record or because they report parameters other than streamflow. Some stations, for example, measure stage only.
NOTICE (11/14/2014) Data
collection and real-time delivery at the streamgages have been
discontinued as of October 1, 2014 due to insufficient funding from the
cooperator. No new data will be collected and real-time data will not
be delivered or available on the web. Users who are willing to
contribute funding for the operation of streamgages should contact
Marla Stuckey, Assistant Director of the USGS Pennsylvania Water
Science Center, at 717-730-6950 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Real-time data typically are recorded at 15-60 minute intervals, stored onsite, and then transmitted to USGS offices every 1 to 4 hours, depending on the data relay technique used. Recording and transmission times may be more frequent during critical events. Data from real-time sites are relayed to USGS offices via satellite, telephone, and/or radio and are available for viewing within minutes of arrival. All current conditions data are provisional and subject to revision.
