    This station is operated in cooperation with:
       New York State Canals

    DRAINAGE AREA.--2,815 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--August 1996 to current year.
    GAGE.--Acoustic velocity meter, water-stage recorder, and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 369.60 ft above NGVD of 1929.
    REMARKS.--Records good. No estimated daily discharges. A large amount of natural storage and some artificial regulation is afforded by many large lakes and the Erie (Barge) Canal system in the river basin. Seneca River basin receives water from Erie (Barge) Canal through Lock 32 near Pittsford. During part of the year, entire flow from 45.5 mi2 of Mud Creek drainage area may be diverted from Chemung River basin into Keuka Lake in Oswego River basin. Telephone and satellite gage-height and velocity telemeters at station.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum daily discharge, 13,600 ft3/s, Jan. 11, 1998; minimum daily discharge, 258 ft3/s, Jan. 22, 2002. Maximum and minimum instantaneous discharges not determined.
