Water Data for the Nation inventory

Monitoring location 01581920 is associated with a Stream in Baltimore County, Maryland. Current conditions of Discharge, Gage height, and Temperature are available. Water data back to 1982 are available online.

The water temperature recorded by the sensor at this site may not be representative of the temperature of the water being released by Prettyboy Dam, particularly during storm events. Overland runoff and tributary inflows between the gaging station and the dam can affect the temperature of the stream at the monitoring location.
