Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2023
LOCATION - Lat 40°03'46", long 76°30'57" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Lancaster County, PA, Hydrologic Unit 02050306, at double-span concrete bridge on SR 23, 400 ft downstream from Little Chiques Creek, and 1.2 mi east of Marietta.
DRAINAGE AREA - 108 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - 1989 to current year. Prior to October 2020, published as "Chickies Creek".
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. April 2002 to December 2020, non-recording gage at same site and datum. Datum of gage is 250 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, from topographic map.
COOPERATION - Station established and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and Natural Resources Conservation Service. 
REMARKS - Records for water year 2021 are rated fair except discharges greater than 1,100 cfs from Oct 1 - Sept 1 and estimated discharge, which are poor.
PERIOD OF RECORD - April 2002 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - Water Temperature: March 2021 to current year. Specific Conductance: March 2021 to current year. pH: March 2021 to current year. Dissolved Oxygen: March 2021 to current year. Turbidity: March 2021 to current year. Nitrate: March 2021 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.
INSTRUMENTATION - Water-quality monitor interfaced with a data collection platform with 15-minute recording interval.
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.
