During cold weather, ice effects on stage and discharge determinations
at some stream-gaging stations are likely. Data values reported on
these pages may be significantly higher or lower than actual
streamflow. Adjustment of data for ice effects can only be done after
detailed analysis. Users are encouraged to contact this office for more
information on specific stream-gaging stations.

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.
This station managed by the PAWSC Pittsburgh Field Office.
