[!] During cold weather, stage and discharge values may be affected by ice at some streamgages. Streamgages experiencing ice conditions will have the discharge record temporarily disabled to prevent the display of erroneous discharge values. Display of discharge record will resume when it is determined that ice conditions are no longer present. Adjustment of data affected by ice can only be done after detailed analysis.

LOCATION.--Lat 40`37'45", long 76`07'30", Schuylkill County, Hydrologic Unit 02040203, on left bank 10 ft upstream from highway bridge on SR 2011 at Landingville, 0.1 mi upstream from Mahannon Creek, and 5.0 mi downstream from West Branch Schuylkill River.
DRAINAGE AREA.--133 square miles.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--August 1947 to April 1953, October 1963 to September 1965, August 1973 to current year.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder, crest-stage gage, water quality sensor, and heated tipping bucket precipitation gage. Datum of gage is 470.64 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Prior to Aug. 27, 1947, non-recording gage 10 ft downstream at same datum. Satellite and land-line telemetry at station.
COOPERATION.--Station established and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey. Funding for the operation of this station is provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
The 30-minute precipitation data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Time series of 1-hour or cumulative daily values will NOT be available for retrieval following the 120-day display period. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least once a year, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.

Supplied by USGS: Maximum recordable gage height (stage sensor operational limit) - 18.9 ft; Data transmitter operational limit - 19.6 ft;
Supplied by NWS: Action stage-7 ft; Flood stage-8 ft; Moderate flood stage-12 ft; Major flood stage-14 ft;
This station managed by the PAWSC New Cumberland Office.
