Prior to January 1919, nonrecording gage at site 150 ft downstream at datum 6.00 ft higher; Aug. 3, 1926 to Nov. 17, 1968, at present site at datum 10.00 ft higher. Nov. 18, 1968 to Feb. 3, 1970, at temporary site 0.2 mi upstream at datum 11.20 ft higher; Feb. 4 to June 8, 1970, there was no gage, gage destroyed by flood; June 9, 1970 to Jan. 18, 1971, nonrecording gage at temporary site 0.2 mi upstream at datum 11.20 ft higher; all during period of flood-control channel construction.
REMARKS - Occasional regulation from hydroelectric plant upstream from station. Diversion upstream from station during navigation season for Delaware and Hudson Canal, 1901-19. Diversion from Rondout Creek through the emergency connection to the Delaware Aqueduct at Lackawack for New York City water supply during April 1944 to May 1951. Since October 1950, flow regulated by Rondout Reservoir (station 01366400). Subsequent to May 1951, entire flow except for conservation releases and periods of spill, diverted from Rondout Reservoir for New York City water supply. Discharge records for this station now represent the natural flow from 288 mi² together with conservation releases and spillage during high flow from Rondout Reservoir.
