REMARKS -

Regulation of flow by New York Power Authority Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Project immediately upstream from gage. Entire flow, runoff from 315 mi², except for periods of spill, diverted from Schoharie Reservoir through Shandaken Tunnel into Esopus Creek upstream from Ashokan Reservoir for water supply of City of New York. For days of reservoir outflow greater than 10 ft³/s, see station 01350101. From Jan. 19, 1996, through Sept. 30, 1998, if flow was greater than about 400 ft³/s, undetermined amounts of flow bypassed the gage. From Oct. 1, 1998, through Sept. 30, 2000, if flow was greater than about 2,000 ft³/s, undetermined amounts of flow bypassed the gage. From Oct. 1, 2000, through Sept. 30, 2006, if flow was greater than about 5,000 ft³/s, undetermined amounts of flow bypassed the gage. From Oct. 1, 2006, through Aug. 27, 2011, if flow was greater than about 6,000 ft³/s, undetermined amounts of flow bypassed the gage. From Aug. 28, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012, if flow was greater than about 30 ft³/s, undetermined amounts of flow bypassed the gage. From Oct. 1, 2012, through current year, if flow is greater than about 10,000 ft³/s, undetermined amounts of flow bypass the gage. Since October 1996, records for periods when flows bypass the gage are furnished by the New York Power Authority.
