    Station gage imageSTATION.--01468500 SCHUYLKILL RIVER AT LANDINGVILLE, PA
    LOCATION.--Lat 40`37'45", long 76`07'30", Schuylkill County, Hydrologic Unit 02040203, on left bank 10 ft upstream from highway bridge on SR 2011 at Landingville, 0.1 mi upstream from Mahannon Creek, and 5.0 mi downstream from West Branch Schuylkill River.
    DRAINAGE AREA.--133 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--August 1947 to April 1953, October 1963 to September 1965, August 1973 to current year.
    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder, crest-stage gage, and climatological sensor. Datum of gage is 470.64 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Prior to Aug. 27, 1947, non-recording gage 10 ft downstream at same datum. Satellite and land-line telemetry at station.
    GAGE HEIGHTS OF IMPORTANCE.-
    Supplied by USGS: Maximum recordable gage height (stage sensor operational limit) - 18.9 ft; Data transmitter operational limit - 19.6 ft;
    Supplied by NWS: Action stage-7 ft; Flood stage-8 ft; Moderate flood stage-12 ft; Major flood stage-14 ft;
    EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Flood in June 1972 reached a stage of 17.36 ft, discharge, 14,000 ft3/s.
    COOPERATION.--Station established and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey. Funding for the operation of this station is provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Geological Survey through the Cooperative Water Program.
    REMARKS.--
    The 30-minute precipitation data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Time series of 1-hour or cumulative daily values will NOT be available for retrieval following the 120-day display period. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least once a year, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
    This station managed by the PAWSC New Cumberland Office.
