Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to protect life and property on a case-by-case basis. The health and safety of the public and our employees are our highest priorities, and we continue to follow guidance from the White House, the CDC, and state and local authorities.

DRAINAGE AREA.--247 mi2. PERIOD OF RECORD.--May 1905 to July 1906 (published as "at Cumberland"), October 1929 to current year. REVISIONS HISTORY.--WSP 726: Drainage area. WSP 1432: 1906, 1930(M), 1933-34(M), 1936-37, 1945(M). GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 640.27 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. May 6, 1905, to July 14, 1906, nonrecording gage at highway bridge 700 ft upstream at different datum. Oct. 18, 1929, to Mar. 17, 1936, water-stage recorder, and Apr. 1, 1936, to Mar. 19, 1937, nonrecording gage at site 200 ft upstream at present gage datum. REMARKS.--Records include drainage from numerous active and abandoned coal mines. Groundwater flow is diverted into the basin from the Georges Creek basin by Hoffman Drainage Tunnel (see station 01601420, continuous record, July 2015 to present). Miscellaneous measurements of discharge from the Hoffman Drainage Tunnel have been made in water years 1944, 1964-65, 1967-82, and 1984 by the U.S. Geological Survey, and in water years 1958 and 1959 by the Maryland Geological Survey.
