The Illinois Water Science Center has transitioned to a new data management software package. While you may not have noticed this transition, some sites may have problems or delays in being updated. We are actively monitoring these conditions and are resolving them as quickly as possible. See the Dec 8 news entry for more information at: https://help.waterdata.usgs.gov/news


USGS 05556500 BIG BUREAU CREEK AT PRINCETON, IL

PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

Click to hidestation-specific text

The stream gaging location has changed. The gage is now located approximately 500 ft upstream at the Route 6 bridge. The gage datum has not changed, so gage height values can be compared to those from the old location. However because of specific channel characteristics, gage height values at the new location will tend to be higher than those at the old location by approximately 0.50 to 0.75 ft. A new rating is being developed to account for the higher gage height values from the new location.

This site is operated in cooperation with the

Streamflow information saves lives and protects property during floods.  Information on the streamflow in the Nation's rivers also helps to ensure adequate water resources for a healthy environment and economy.  The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) operates and maintains a national network of over 7,000 streamgages.

This station managed by the De Kalb Field Office.
