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.

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.
