NOTICE (11/20/2019) Water quality data collection at this streamgage has been discontinued. Although historical data will remain accessible, no new data will be collected.
This site is affected by storm tides which increase stream water levels at the gage. Stage values reported are believed to be reasonably accurate, but the higher stage readings may produce estimates of discharge that are higher than actual.
