NOTICE (10/28/2013) -- The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), continues to work with partners to secure funding for threatened streamgages. As we reported in the September 5th bulletin, 21 lake and streamgages in New York have funding support through September 30, 2014. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has also recently indicated they will, at least temporarily, support five additional sites through March 31, 2014 while they complete a statewide evaluation of streamflow data needs.
There remain 10 streamgages that are currently unfunded and will be shut down Friday November 1, 2013 and an additional 2 streamgages that will be shut down at the end of the 2013 calendar year.
Users who are willing to contribute funding to continue operation of this streamgage should contact Rob Breault or Ward Freeman of the USGS New York Water Science Center at 518-285-5658 or

This station is operated in cooperation with:
   NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
