Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage
is 24.78 ft above NGVD of 1929. Prior to May 1914, at same site at
different datum, and 1928-1962 water years, at same site at datum 1.00

Turbidity data are collected every 15
minutes using an in situ turbidity probe located near the downstream
end of the central bridge pier directly across from the gage. Daily
suspended-sediment load and concentration are derived from a regression
equation relating turbidity to suspended-sediment concentration.
