During the winter, river stage may be significantly affected by backwater from ice, resulting in incorrect discharge data. Consequently, discharge data may not be displayed during periods of ice effect.
! We're replacing this page with a Next Generation Monitoring Location Page.
We're modernizing Water Data for the Nation delivery. Find out what this means for you. This page will be discontinued Jan.1, 2023.
