USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 93-4076


Description, qualifying comments, and acceptable water years.

Drainage area is 2232 sq.mi.                            Datum is 841.04 ft.

Station is in the state of NY (county code 007) and serviced by the NY office.
Channel slope is 3.60 feet/mile
Stream length is 121.80 miles
Mean basin elevation is 1560.00 feet above National Geodetic Vertical Datum
Percent of contributing drainage area covered by 
   Storage: 2.64%     Lakes: 0.71%        Forests: 53.00%     Glaciers: N.A.%
Soil infiltration index is 3.89 inches

January minimum temperature is 14.50 degrees Fahrenheit

This is a National Water Conditions station.
Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Records are unsuitable for analysis at less than monthly resolution due to minor regulation by upstream reservoirs,
   beginning with the completion of East Sidney Lake in 1950. Months with constant discharge values, in 1915 and 1928,
   are indicative of estimated average monthly discharge during periods of icing or recorder failure.

Monthly and longer averages for 75 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.
