    DRAINAGE AREA.--63.7 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--Occasional low-flow and/or miscellaneous discharge measurements, water years 1941, 1956-61. October 1963 to current year. Prior to October 1988, published as "at Shandaken" (01362198).

    REMARKS.--Records good. Occasional slight regulation when filling or draining swimming pools or small ponds upstream from station. Satellite and telephone gage-height telemeter at station.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 29,300 ft3/s, Aug. 28, 2011, gage height, 16.34 ft, from rating curve extended above 3,700 ft3/s, on basis of runoff comparison of peak flows from contracted-opening measurements at gage heights 14.44 ft and 16.34 ft at site 1.0 mi upstream; minimum discharge, 2.1 ft3/s, Sept. 16, 1983 (result of slight regulation upstream from station).
