By J.R. Slack, Alan M. Lumb, and Jurate Maciunas Landwehr
USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 93-4076


Description, qualifying comments, and acceptable water years.

Drainage area is 612 sq.mi.                             Datum is 217.23 ft.
Located in hydrologic unit 04150306 at Latitude: 44:51:49N  Longitude: 074:46:45W
Station is in the state of NY (county code 089) and serviced by the NY office.
Channel slope is 25.60 feet/mile
Stream length is 66.80 miles
Mean basin elevation is 1350.00 feet above National Geodetic Vertical Datum
Percent of contributing drainage area covered by 
   Storage: 14.88%    Lakes: 1.65%        Forests: 76.00%     Glaciers: N.A.%
Soil infiltration index is 5.38 inches
Annual precipitation is 38.50 inches
Precipitation intensity is 2.10 inches/24 hour (expected on the average once each two years)
January minimum temperature is 7.00 degrees Fahrenheit
Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Records are unsuitable for analysis at less than monthly resolution due to diurnal regulation by upstream
   powerplant. Winter records are ice affected. In 1932, constant values during an entire month is indicative of an
   estimated average monthly discharge value.

Monthly and longer averages for 76 water years are acceptable (all years except partial years).
A water year with acceptable data is indicated by an asterisk in the time line, which spans 1874 through 1988.
