Important for you to know:

  • Discrete sample data delivery is undergoing modernization. Starting March 11, 2024, there will be a period when new sample data will not be accessible. Learn more about the upcoming change on our blog.
  • New to WDFN: customize and keep track of your list of favorite monitoring locations and data types using the new My Favorites page. To learn more, read our announcement on our Water Data for the Nation blog.

Water Data for the Nation inventory

Monitoring location 01473000 is associated with a Stream in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Current conditions of Discharge, Gage height, Precipitation, and more are available. Water data back to 1914 are available online.

June 1914, to Sept. 6, 1921, non-recording gage at site 1,650 ft downstream at datum 3.29 ft lower. Sept. 7, 1921, to Sept. 13, 1927, non-recording gage at present site and datum. Regulations from Green Lane Reservoir since December 1956 and from the Bradshaw Distributary since October 1994. Unknown amounts from pumpage to the Limerick power plant on the Schuylkill River. 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.
