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 values. 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 sites.
NOTICE: Due to extensive deterioration of the existing gage structure, a new gage shelter has been installed 1700 feet upstream of the current location. Gage-height data are being collected concurrently at both locations, at the same datum, and a new stage-dicharge rating is currently under development for the new gaging location. Data for the new location are found in the plot titled as Auxiliary Gage Height. Plans are to terminate data collection at the old location during the summer of 2016. Please contact Jeremy White of the USGS Virginia-West Virginia Water Science Center (304-347-5130 x246, firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.

DRAINAGE AREA.--722 mi2. PERIOD OF RECORD.--January 1913 to current year (daily discharge and peaks). Monthly discharge only for some periods published in WSP 1305. REVISED RECORDS.--WSP 1305: 1917(M), 1924(M), 1932(M), 1936(M), 1938-39(M). WSP l335: 1916. WSP 1385: 1918-19(M).

GAGE.--Water-stage recorder with satellite telemeter. Datum of gage is 1,589.66 ft above COE 12. Prior to Aug. 17, 1944, nonrecording gage on Moss Bridge about 1,600 ft upstream at datum 1.13 ft higher. Nov. 21, 1985, to Sept. 30, 1986, recording gage on Moss Bridge at datum 1.27 ft lower. EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Flood of 1844 was about 85,000 ft3/s. Flood of July 10, 1888, reached a stage of 20.5 ft, discharge, 71,000 ft3/s, from floodmarks, at site and datum in use prior to Aug. 17, 1944; it was not exceeded until flood of Oct. 15, 1954, which reached a stage 0.3 ft higher at that site and datum. This gaging station is maintained in cooperation with: First Energy Corporation U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Pittsburgh District
