Station gage imageSTATION.--03016000 ALLEGHENY RIVER AT WEST HICKORY, PA
LOCATION.--Lat 41`34'15", long 79`24'29", Forest County, Hydrologic Unit 05010003, on right bank at downstream side of bridge on State Highway 127 at West Hickory, 0.6 mi upstream from Siggins Run, 0.8 mi downstream from East Hickory Creek, and at mile 158.9.
DRAINAGE AREA.--3,660 square miles.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1941 to March 2006; October 2007 to current year.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and non-heated tipping bucket precipitation gage. Datum of gage is 1,059.90 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Prior to Dec. 12, 1941, non-recording gage at same site and datum. 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.
REMARKS.--Flow regulated since November 1949 by Chautauqua Lake, since October 1965 by Allegheny Reservoir (station 03012520) 39 mi upstream. Due to bridge construction, station operations were suspended Mar 21, 2006 through Oct 18, 2007.
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.
