Gauge Description:

This gauge measures the release from the Francis Walters dam, about 15 miles upstream.  If there has been a recent rainfall, the level may be considerable above the dam release.  Compare with the Lehigh's Lehighton gauge (about 5 miles below the takeout for this section) to see if there is a significant natural flow.
