Hocking River - River Level

Logo for Engineering and Public Works Department for the City of Athens, OH

With spring rains upon us, the City of Athens would like to share a link to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) gauging station near the Stimson Avenue Bridge.  This station is monitored and reported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). USGS uses this station to monitor the Hocking River and to predict river elevations.  The City has found these predictions useful in preparing for high water events.
