       U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Baltimore District
       U.S. Geological Survey


    LOCATION.--Lat 42°01'43", long 77°07'56" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Steuben County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02050104, on left bank 50 ft downstream from bridge on County Highway 120 at Lindley, and 6 mi upstream from Canisteo River.
    DRAINAGE AREA.--771 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--January 1930 to March 1995, annual maximum only--1997-2009, October 2009 to current year.
    REVISED RECORDS.--WSP 871: 1938. WSP 2103: Drainage area. WDR NY-04-3: 2002-03 (M).
    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 964.50 ft above NGVD of 1929.
    REMARKS.--Records good except for estimated daily discharges, which are fair. Since November 1979, flood flows regulated by Tioga and Hammond Lakes, and since December 1979, by Cowanesque Lake; normal regulation occasionally sufficient to affect figures of monthly runoff. Telephone and satellite gage-height telemeters at station.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge since construction of Tioga, Hammond, and Cowanesque Lakes in 1979, 13,900 ft3/s, Oct. 23, 1990, Aug. 18, 1994, and Sept. 17, 2004; maximum gage height, 13.81 ft, Sept. 17, 2004; minimum discharge, 21 ft3/s, Aug. 28, 1980, gage height, 2.68 ft.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION.--Maximum discharge prior to construction of Tioga, Hammond, and Cowanesque Lakes in 1979, 128,000 ft3/s, June 23, 1972, gage height, 26.27 ft, from floodmark in gage house, from rating curve extended above 31,000 ft3/s on basis of velocity-area and slope-area studies at gage height 19.2 ft and conveyance study and slope-area measurements at gage heights 22.87 ft and 26.27 ft; minimum discharge, 6.1 ft3/s, Sept. 1, 1939.
