[!] 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 41`51'09", long 79`19'03", Warren County, Hydrologic Unit 05010001, on right bank 150 ft downstream from bridge on Main Street at Youngsville, 500 ft upstream from Matthews Run, and 3.7 mi upstream from mouth. Records include flow of Matthews Run.
DRAINAGE AREA.--321 square miles, including that of Matthews Run.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1909 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods, published in WSP 1305. Flow of Matthews Run included in records since October 1938.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and non-heated tipping bucket precipitation gage. Datum of gage is 1,186.92 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Prior to Sept. 30, 1933, nonrecording gage at site 150 ft upstream at datum 2.00 ft higher. Oct. 1, 1933 to June 15, 1939, nonrecording gage at site 150 ft upstream, and June 16, 1939 to Sept. 30, 1961, water-stage recorder at present site, both at datum 1.00 ft higher. Satellite 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, Pittsburgh District, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
The 15-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.
This station managed by the PAWSC Pittsburgh Field Office.
