       NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
       U.S. Geological Survey


    LOCATION.--Lat 42°13'05", long 75°50'54" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Broome County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02050102, on left bank in Chenango Valley State Park, and 1.2 mi downstream from Tioughnioga River and Village of Chenango Forks.
    DRAINAGE AREA.--1,483 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--November 1912 to current year.
    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 871.63 ft above NGVD of 1929. Nov. 11, 1912 to Oct. 1, 1914, nonrecording gage, and Oct. 2, 1914 to Aug. 2, 1936, water-stage recorder, at site 300 ft upstream at same datum.
    REMARKS.--Records good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are fair. Since March 1942, flood flows partly regulated by Whitney Point Lake (station 01511000). Slight diversion from upstream tributaries for operation of Erie (Barge) Canal. Telephone and satellite gage-height telemeters at station.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, since construction of Whitney Point Lake in 1942, 49,500 ft3/s, Sept. 8, 2011, gage height, 14.93 ft; maximum gage height, 14.99 ft, Feb. 4, 1992 (ice jam); minimum discharge, 79 ft3/s, Sept. 3, 4, 5, 6, 1999.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION.--Maximum discharge, prior to construction of Whitney Point Lake in 1942, 96,000 ft3/s, July 8, 1935, gage height, 20.3 ft, from floodmarks, from rating curve extended above 41,000 ft3/s on basis of slope-area measurement of peak flow; minimum discharge, 84 ft3/s, Sept. 19, 25, 1939.
