   NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
   U.S. Geological Survey


LOCATION.--Lat 42°49'45", long 73°39'58" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Saratoga County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02020003, 0.4 mi upstream from dam at Lock 1 of the Champlain (Barge) Canal, 2.8 mi northeast of Waterford, and 3.4 mi downstream from dam at Lock 2 of the Champlain (Barge) Canal.
DRAINAGE AREA.--4,605 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1887 to September 1956, October 1976 to current year. Prior to October 1976, published as "at Mechanicville" (01335500, drainage area 4,500 mi2). Daily discharge records from October 1976 to September 1981 are published with suspended-sediment data as 01335770 Hudson River at Waterford, NY.
REVISED RECORDS.--WDR NY-99-1: 1998.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Since Oct. 1, 1998, supplementary water-stage and taintor gate-position recorders, 0.4 mi downstream at dam at Lock 1. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929. Prior to October 1976, various gages at site 5.8 mi upstream at different datum. Prior to February 1978, nonrecording gage 200 ft downstream.
REMARKS.--Records fair except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Flow regulated appreciably by Great Sacandaga Lake since March 1930 (see station 01323500) and Indian Lake (see station 01314500). Diurnal fluctuation caused by powerplants upstream from station. Water is diverted into St. Lawrence River basin through Glens Falls feeder, Bond Creek, and Champlain (Barge) Canal, and occasionally may be received from that basin through summit level of Champlain (Barge) Canal at Dunham Basin. Water-discharge data for July 1992 through May 1994 based on records for Hudson River at Stillwater (01331095) and Hoosic River near Eagle Bridge (01334500) due to reconstruction of dam at Lock 1. Satellite and telephone gage-height telemeter at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge since construction of Great Sacandaga Lake, 118,000 ft3/s, Jan. 1, 1949; maximum gage height, 36.38 ft, May 30, 31, 1984; minimum daily discharge, 614 ft3/s, Feb. 1, 1931; minimum instantaneous discharge not determined.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION.--Maximum discharge prior to construction of Great Sacandaga Lake, 120,000 ft3/s, Mar. 28, 1913.
