Low flows augmented at times by inflow from Hoopes Reservoir located 5.7 mi upstream from gage on unnamed tributary to Red Clay Creek, capacity 2,000,000,000 gal. Water from Brandywine Creek is pumped into Hoopes Reservoir and is then released into Red Clay Creek during periods of low flow. Water from Red Clay Creek is used for municipal supply.
