Please Note: The Township is currently in the process of making some changes to the website and the flood gauges. The two gauges operated by the township, located on the Schuylkill River at the Route 29 bridge, and the Perkiomen Creek at the Arcola Road bridge, are currently unavailable. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The Schuylkill River is considered at flood gauge at 18 feet. The Perkiomen Creek is consider at flood stage at 11 feet.
The four links on this page are directed to monitoring stations located along both waterways. The monitoring stations should only be used as tools when deciding what action you should take when flooding is occurring. Monitoring the waterways, listening to weather reports, responding to Township alerts and advice from Emergency Officials as well as other sources should all be taken into consideration when making decisions. As a reminder, flooding is leading cause of death by natural disaster in Pennsylvania. Having a plan in place and evacuating prior to flooding occurs helps protect you and your family.
