    STATION.--01534180 STILLWATER LAKE NEAR FOREST CITY, PA
    LOCATION.--Lat 41`41'46", long 75`29'10", Susquehanna County, Hydrologic Unit 02050107, at Stillwater Dam on Lackawanna River, 0.3 mi downstream from confluence of East and West Branches, 1.4 mi south of Union Dale, and 3.5 mi north of Forest City.
    DRAINAGE AREA.--37.1 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--December 1959 to current year.
    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is U.S. Army Corps of Engineers local project datum. Prior to water year 2007, the datum was incorrectly reported as NGVD 1929.
    REMARKS.--Reservoir is formed by an earthfill dam, rock faced, with ungated concrete spillway at elevation 1,621.00 ft (capacity, 12,000 acre-ft). Storage began December 1959. Reservoir is used for flood control and municipal water supply. Flood storage is regulated by power-operated slide gate; water supply storage is regulated by a weir formed by stop-logs. Satellite and landline telemetry at station.
    The 15-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.

    COOPERATION.--Funding for the operation of this station is provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District.
    This station managed by the PAWSC Williamsport Field Office.
