PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

Click to hidestation-specific text

NOTICE (07/06/2020) -- Stream stage, discharge, and water quality data collection at this streamgage will be discontinued on 10/01/2020 due to lack of funding.
Although historic data will remain accessible, no new data will be collected unless one or more new funding partners are found.
Potential funding partners or general questions concerning continuance of operations may contact Chuck Walker (cwwalker@usgs.gov;443-498-5523).
