USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
01558000 LITTLE JUNIATA RIVER AT SPRUCE CREEK, PA
LOCATION - Lat 40°36'45", long 78°08'27" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Huntingdon County, PA, Hydrologic Unit 02050302, on right bank on SR 4006, 150 ft downstream from Penn Central Railroad bridge, 0.5 mi northwest of village of Spruce Creek, and 0.5 mi upstream from Spruce Creek.
DRAINAGE AREA - 220 mi².
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - June 1938 to current year. Prior to October 1938 monthly discharge only, published in WSP 1302.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 751.15 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, Baltimore District, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Geological Survey.
REMARKS - Records for water years 2014-2015 are good except discharge less than 100 ft³/s, which is fair and estimated daily discharge, which is poor. Records for water years 2016-2017 are good except discharge less than 100 ft³/s, which is fair. Records for water years 2018-2019 are good except for discharge less than 100 ft³/s, which is fair and estimated discharge, which is poor. Records for water year 2020 are fair except estimated discharge, which is poor.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of Mar 18, 1936 reached a stage of 19.1 ft, from floodmarks 175 ft downstream, discharge, 39,800 ft³/s, from rating curve extended above 5,600 ft³/s on basis of slope-area measurement of peak flow.
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.
