REMARKS.--No estimated daily discharges. Records good except those below about 50 ft3/s, which are fair. Flow regulated by Great Sacandaga Lake since Mar. 27, 1930 (see station 01323500); discharge over spillway, part or all of several days in 1983, 1990, 1993, 2000, 2003-04, 2006-08, 2011 (only spillage since completion of Conklingville Dam in 1930). Extensive diurnal fluctuation caused by release of water from Great Sacandaga Lake, through Elmer J.
