REMARKS - Entire flow from 371 mi² of drainage area controlled by Pepacton Reservoir (station 01416900), and entire flow from 454 mi² of drainage area controlled by Cannonsville Reservoir (station 01424997). Part of flow from these reservoirs diverted for New York City municipal supply. Remainder of flow (except for conservation releases and spill) impounded for release during periods of low flow in the lower Delaware River basin, as directed by the Delaware River Master.

From June 1987 to June 1989, water-temperature satellite telemeter provided one-hour-interval readings. From June 1973 to November 1989, water-temperature recorder provided one-hour-interval readings. Prior to August 1971, water-temperature recorder provided continuous recordings.
REMARKS - Temperature readings prior to Oct. 1, 2007, rounded to the nearest 0.5 °C. Water temperature is affected by release of water from upstream reservoir.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - WATER TEMPERATURE: Prior to Oct. 1, 2007--Maximum (water years 1968-70, 1973, 1975-86, 1989, 1991-95, 2007), 30.5 °C, June 16, 1976, July 10, 1981; minimum (water years 1968-71, 1974, 1977-78, 1980-96, 2007), 0.0 °C on many days during winter period.
