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 41°28'54", long 79°41'44" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Venango County, PA, Hydrologic Unit 05010003, on right bank 100 ft downstream from bridge on State Highway 8, about 300 ft upstream from Cherrytree Run, and 1 mi north of Rouseville.
DRAINAGE AREA - 283 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WSP 743: Drainage area. WSP 1053: 1936-37(M), 1943(M).
PERIOD OF RECORD - June 1932 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 1027.9 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988. Prior to Jun 9, 1941, non-recording gage at same site and datum. Prior to April 4, 2023, the datum of gage was reported as 1,028.32 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929.  Satellite 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, Pittsburgh District, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Geological Survey.

Instantaneous low flow for period of record the result of abnormal regulation. Abnormal regulation is the result of operation of an ice control structure located upstream of gage. Prior to water year 2008, records included flow of Cherrytree Run. Records good for water year, except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor.

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 Samples 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.
