       New York State Canals
       Onondaga County, Dept. of Water Environment Protection

    LOCATION.--Lat 43°12'18", long 76°13'04" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Oswego County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 04140202, on right bank, 50 ft downstream of Morgan Road bridge, 9.2 mi downstream from Oneida Lake, 1.3 mi north of Euclid, and 7.7 mi upstream from mouth at Three Rivers.
    DRAINAGE AREA.--1,439 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--November 1996 to current year. Records for September 1902 to December 1909, published as "Oneida River near Euclid," and January 1910 to December 1912 and October 1947 to September 1998, published as "Oneida River at Caughdenoy" (station 04246500) at site 7.6 mi upstream, are not equivalent because of regulation between sites.
    GAGE.--Acoustic velocity meter and water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 358.08 ft above NGVD of 1929.
    REMARKS.--Records fair except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Considerable seasonal regulation by operation of gates in Oneida River and Erie (Barge) Canal with a large amount of natural storage in Oneida Lake. Water may be diverted into or received from Mohawk River basin through summit level of Erie (Barge) Canal between New London and Utica. Nearly all of flow from 14 mi2 of Tioughnioga River basin may be diverted into De Ruyter Reservoir, in Oswego River basin. Telephone and satellite gage-height and velocity telemeters at station.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum daily discharge, 10,600 ft3/s, May 1, 2011; minimum daily discharge, -52 ft3/s, June 1, 2006. Maximum and minimum instantaneous discharges not determined.
