SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1950 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 216.60 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Satellite and landline telemetry at station.
COOPERATION - Station established and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey. Funding for this station is provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
REMARKS - Flow regulated since April 1979 by Blue Marsh Lake (station 01470870) 3.9 mi upstream. Records for water year 2014 are good except those for discharges less than 100 ft³/s, which are fair; no estimated daily discharges. Records for water year 2015 are good except those for discharges less than 100 ft³/s and those estimated daily discharges, which are fair. Records for water year 2016 are good except those for discharges less than 100 ft³/s, which are fair. Records for water year 2017 are good except those for discharges less than 100 ft³/s and those for estimated discharges, which are fair. Records for water year 2018 are good except those for discharges less than 100 ft³/s and those for estimated discharges, which are fair.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - April 2002 to current year.
COOPERATION - Water-quality samples were collected as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Water-Quality Network (WQN) with cooperation from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
REMARKS - As of October 2013, results from discrete water quality samples collected at this site are available through the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System web interface on the "Water Quality for the Nation" webpage. Analyses for pH, water temperature, specific conductance, and dissolved oxygen were performed on site. All other sample analyses were performed at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection laboratory in Harrisburg, Pa. Occasionally, values for filtered parameters may exceed values for the corresponding unfiltered parameter. These results are within the limits of analytical precision and methods.
