This station is operated in cooperation with:
   National Weather Service
   NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
   U.S. Geological Survey


LOCATION.--Lat 42°48'00", long 74°15'46" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Schenectady County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02020005, on right bank 0.4 mi south of Burtonsville, 3.3 mi north of Esperance, and about 15 mi upstream from mouth.
DRAINAGE AREA.--886 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1939 to current year.
REVISED RECORDS.--WDR NY-82-1: 1981(average discharge). WDR NY-90-1: Drainage area.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 507.98 ft above NGVD of 1929.
REMARKS.--Records fair except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Flow regulated to some extent by Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Project about 37 mi upstream. Entire flow, runoff from 315 mi2, except for periods of spill, diverted from Schoharie Reservoir through Shandaken Tunnel into Esopus Creek upstream from Ashokan Reservoir for water supply of City of New York. For days of reservoir outflow greater than 10 ft3/s, see station 01350101. Satellite and telephone gage-height telemeter at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 128,000 ft3/s, Aug. 29, 2011, gage height, 17.46 ft, from floodmark in gage house, from rating curve extended above 75,000 ft3/s on basis of runoff comparison of peak flows from contracted-opening and flow-over-road measurement and slope-area measurement at site 3.3 mi upstream; minimum discharge, 2.4 ft3/s, Sept. 24, 25, 1964, gage height, 0.30 ft.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Floods of March 1936 and September 1938 reached stages of 10.5 and 10.2 ft, respectively, from information provided by local resident. However, flood of October 1903 is known to have reached a higher stage than the 1936 or 1938 flood.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD1.--SUSPENDED-SEDIMENT DISCHARGE: October 2012 to current year.
