Click to hidestation-specific text

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


LOCATION.--Lat 41°39'03", long 73°56'42" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Dutchess County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02020008, on left bank at IBM pumping station, 2.3 mi south of Poughkeepsie, and 3.5 mi south of the Mid-Hudson bridge. Water-quality sampling site at elevation station.
DRAINAGE AREA.--11,740 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--May 1992 to current year.
REVISED RECORDS.--WDR NY-97-1: 1996.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929.
REMARKS.--Prior to October 2002 published as maximum, minimum, and mean elevation. Elevations are not corrected for changes in water density. Blanks in tables are the result of only one high or low tide during a day or interruption of record. Satellite and telephone elevation, temperature, and specific conductance telemeter at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation recorded, 9.54 ft, Oct. 29, 2012, but may have been higher during period of instrument malfunction, outside elevation was 9.28 ft, from floodmarks; minimum elevation, -4.38 ft, Mar. 14, 15, 1993.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD1.--
SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: May 1992 to current year.
WATER TEMPERATURE: May 1992 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION1.--Water-temperature and specific-conductance satellite and telephone telemeter provides 15-minute-interval readings. Automatic sampler intake tubing is mounted to steel bulkhead wall at gage about 10 ft above the channel bottom.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD1.--SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum, 2,900 uS/cm, Sept. 8, 2002; minimum, 96 uS/cm, Jan. 30, 1995.
WATER TEMPERATURE: Prior to Oct. 1, 2007--Maximum, 29.0 °C, Aug. 14, 2005; minimum, 0.0 °C on many days during winter periods, except 2002.
WATER TEMPERATURE: After Oct. 1, 2007--Maximum, 28.3 °C, July 24, 2010, July 21, 2013; minimum, -0.2 °C, Feb. 6, 7, 2010, several days during February 2011.
