DRAINAGE AREA.--378 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD.--July 1933 to current year. Prior to Oct. 1, 1941, published as "at Quaker Bridge," (low-flow records at this site are not equivalent owing to well pumpage upstream). Fragmentary records published during August 1933 to September 1941 for "at Cornell Dam near Croton" and "at New Croton near Croton" are equivalent. Oct. 1, 1941 to Sept. 30, 1955 published as "at New Croton Dam near Croton".
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder, crest-stage gage, and concrete control. Datum of gage is 43.12 ft above NAVD of 1988. Prior to Oct. 1, 1941, supplementary water-stage recorder and concrete control at site 1.1 mi downstream at Quaker Bridge.
REMARKS.--Entire flow, except for periods of spilling and releases to augment Croton-on-Hudson water supply, diverted from New Croton Reservoir for municipal supply of City of New York.
