LOCATION.--Lat 43°18'15.3", long 73°32'47.4" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Washington County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02020003, on right bank 400 ft upstream from Bond Creek at Dunham Basin, 2.0 mi east of courthouse at Hudson Falls, and 8.0 mi downstream from Hudson River feeder dam at Glens Falls.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--September 1945 to July 1980, November 2014 to current year (navigation seasons only).
REVISIONS HISTORY.--Discharge for the period, July 1, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2018, was revised on Sept. 13, 2019, based on changes to the stage-discharge rating.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 138.56 ft above NAVD of 1988.
REMARKS.--Feeder flow during navigation season is net diversion from Hudson River basin to the summit level of the Champlain (Barge) Canal, 0.4 mi downstream, and is diverted in accordance with requirements of the canal. Flow during the remainder of the year consists of leakage through headgates and inflow from area tributary to feeder above station, which may continue during period of nonoperation. During navigation season a portion of the flow is rediverted into Lake Champlain basin; the remainder returns to the Hudson River in southbound lockages.
Water Years 2015-19: Records good. Water Years 2020-21: Records fair.
