[!] ICE EFFECTS ON STREAMFLOW -- During cold weather, ice effects on stage and discharge determinations at some streamgages are likely. Streamgages experiencing ice conditions will have the discharge record temporarily disabled to prevent the display of erroneous discharge values. The discharge record will resume when it is determined that ice conditions are no longer present. Adjustment of data for ice effects can only be done after detailed analysis.

Station gage imageSTATION.--01431500 LACKAWAXEN RIVER AT HAWLEY, PA
LOCATION.--Lat 41`28'34", long 75`10'21", Wayne County, Hydrologic Unit 02040103, on left bank at bridge on Church Street in Hawley, 700 ft upstream from Wallenpaupack Creek, and 3,000 ft downstream from Middle Creek.
DRAINAGE AREA.--290 square miles.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--July 1908 to September 1917, August 1938 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods, published in WSP 1302. October 1917 to December 1919, gage heights and discharge measurements only, in reports of Water Supply Commission of Pennsylvania.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder, crest-stage gage, and climatological sensor. Datum of gage is 869.00 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Prior to 1938, non-recording gage at same site and datum, and Aug 20, 1955, to Feb. 13, 1956, non-recording gage at site 1,000 ft downstream at same datum. Satellite and landline telemetry at station.
COOPERATION.--Funding for the operation of this station is provided by the USGS Delaware River Master, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, and PPL Holtwood, LLC.
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.

SUPPLIED BY NWS:--Action stage-9 ft; Flood stage-11 ft; Moderate flood stage-12 ft; Major flood stage-20 ft.
This station managed by the PAWSC Williamsport Field Office.
