SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - February 1914 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 765.53 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Prior to Oct. 1942, non-recording gage at site 85 ft. downstream at datum 8.62 ft higher. Water-stage recorder Oct. 1942 to Sept. 1975, 0.6 mi downstream at datum 11.82 ft lower. Non-recording gage Sept. 1975 to Aug. 1976, at bridge 0.6 mi downstream at datum 11.82 ft lower. Non-recording gage Aug. 1976 to Oct. 1977, at site 85 ft. downstream at present datum. Water-stage recorder Oct. 1977 to Sep. 2017 at site 85 ft. downstream, at present datum. Satellite telemetry at station.
COOPERATION - Station established and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
REMARKS - Maximum peak flow for period of record occurred at gage height 16.90 ft (15.3 ft in gage well) at site 0.6 mi downstream and datum 11.82 ft lower. Records for water year 2014 are good except for period Oct 1 to Mar 30, which is fair, and those for periods of estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Records for water year 2015 are good except those for periods of estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Records for water year 2016 are fair except those for periods of estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Records for water year 2017 are fair except those for periods of estimated discharges, which are poor.
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.
