[!] ICE EFFECTS ON STREAMFLOW -- 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 40`57'13", long 78`31'40", Clearfield County, Hydrologic Unit 02050201, at Curwensville Dam on West Branch Susquehanna River, 0.7 mi upstream from State Highway 453, 1.2 mi south of Curwensville, and 2.5 mi upstream from Anderson Creek.
DRAINAGE AREA.--365 square miles.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--November 1965 to current year.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and heated tipping bucket precipitation gage. Datum of gage is U.S. Army Corps of Engineers local project datum. Prior to water year 2007, the datum was incorrectly reported as NGVD 1929.
REMARKS.--Reservoir formed by earthfill dam with excavated chute spillway and concrete control sill at elevation 1,228.00 ft. Storage began in November 1965. Capacity at elevation 1,228.00 ft is 124,200 acre-ft. Conservation pool elevation is 1,155.00 ft, is used for flood control, recreation and study of water quality. Figures given herein represent total contents. Flow regulated by three gates and low-flow bypass system. Satellite and landline telemetry at station.
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.

COOPERATION.--Funding for the operation of this station is provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District.
This station managed by the PAWSC New Cumberland Office.
