USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
01651730 BEAVERDAM CREEK AT MD-295 NEAR CHEVERLY, MD
LOCATION - Lat 38°54'58.7", long 76°56'03.5" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Prince George's County, MD, Hydrologic Unit 02070010, on left bank, 500 ft downstream of Baltimore-Washington Parkway bridge, 1.0 mi southwest of Cheverly, and 0.5 mi upstream from mouth.
DRAINAGE AREA - 14.9 mi².  
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 2016 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and velocity meter. Datum of gage is 0.00 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988.
REMARKS -
  • Water Years 2019-2020: Gage-height record and discharge record poor.
  • Water Years 2017-2018: Gage-height record good and discharge record poor.

  • This is a tidal discharge station. Discharge is computed from relations between stage vs. area and index velocity vs. mean channel velocity. Daily mean discharges were computed using the Godin low-pass filter to remove tidal effects from unit values. U.S. Geological Survey satellite data-collection platform at station.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum recorded elevation, 12.57  ft, September 10, 2020; minimum recorded elevation, -0.24 ft, September 22, 2019. Maximum discharge, 5,140 ft³/s, June 3, 2018; minimum discharge, -23.4 ft³/s, May 7, 2017.
