    REMARKS.--Records good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are fair. Diurnal fluctuation at low flow caused by powerplant. Flow regulated to some extent by Rushford Lake since July 1928, and at high flows since November 1951 by Mount Morris Lake (station 04224000). Monthly figures of discharge and runoff 1952 to 1966 water years adjusted for change in contents in Rushford Lake and Mount Morris Lake. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, telephone and satellite gage-height telemeters at station.
