DRAINAGE AREA - 315 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WSP 726: Drainage area. WSP 1302: 1914-17, 1918(M), 1922-23, 1924(M), 1925-29, 1930-31(M), 1933(M).
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1913 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 1,207.14 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Prior to Oct. 17, 1929, non-recording gage at same site and datum. 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, Baltimore District, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
REMARKS - Records for water year 2014 are good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Records for water year 2015 are good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Records for water year 2016 are good except those for estimated daily discharges and Feb 15 to Mar 15, are poor. Records for water year 2017 are good except those for estimated discharges, which are poor. Records for water year 2018 are fair except those flows greater than 1200 cfs and for estimated discharges, which are poor. Records for water year 2019 are good except those for period Oct 1 through Apr 15, which are fair and those estimated discharges, which are poor.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum stage known prior to 1913, about 18.5 ft, May 13, 1889, discharge, about 27,000 ft³/s.
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.
