Current River Conditions
River & Dam Levels in the Lackawanna River Watershed

We are having difficulty with our "River Gages" page.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  Please view river levels for Archbald and Old Forge.  Thank you for your patience.

The Lackawanna Watershed is located within four northeastern Pennsylvania counties: western Wayne, southeastern Susquehanna, central Lackawanna, and northeastern Luzerne.

Flow for the main stem of the River originates from releases at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Baltimore District controlled Stillwater Dam, which receives water from the East and West branches of the Lackawanna River.  Additional flows enter the River from approximately 65 tributary streams, including major tributaries such as: Fall Brook, Rush Brook, Aylesworth Creek, Leggetts Creek, Roaring Brook, Spring Brook and Mill Creek (for more info on these and other tributary streams, check out Appendix C of the Lackawanna River Conservation Plan).

Graphical water flow information regarding Stillwater Dam and Aylesworth Dam is available from the USACE Baltimore District.  Information on the River's level and discharge are available by accessing data from the four USGS streamflow gaging stations on the main stem of the Lackawanna River at Forest City, Archbald, Leggets Creek and Old Forge.
