USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
01434000 DELAWARE RIVER AT PORT JERVIS, NY
LOCATION - Lat 41°22'14", long 74°41'52" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Pike County, PA, Hydrologic Unit 02040104, on right bank 250 ft downstream from bridge on U.S. Highways 6 and 209 between Port Jervis, NY and Matamoras, PA, 1.2 mi upstream from Neversink River, and 6.5 mi downstream from Mongaup River.
DRAINAGE AREA - 3,076 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WSP 1031: 1905-36. WDR NY-71-1: 1970. WDR NY-82-1: Drainage area. WDR NY-86-1: 1979-80. WDR NY-04-1: 2003.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1904 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 415.35 ft above NGVD of 1929 and 414.78 ft above NAVD of 1988. Prior to Aug. 14, 1928, nonrecording gage at bridge 250 ft upstream at same datum; operated by U.S. Weather Service prior to June 20, 1914.
REMARKS - Flow regulated by Prompton Reservoir (station 01428900), General Edgar Jadwin Reservoir (station 01429400), Lake Wallenpaupack (station 01431700), Toronto Reservoir (station 01433100), Cliff Lake (station 01433200), Swinging Bridge Reservoir (station 01433000), and smaller reservoirs. Large diurnal fluctuations at medium and low flows caused by powerplants on tributary streams. Subsequent to September 1954, entire flow from 371 mi² of drainage area controlled by Pepacton Reservoir (station 01416900), and subsequent to October 1963, 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.
Water Years 2014-21: Records good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - The U.S. Weather Bureau reported a discharge of 205,000 ft³/s, Oct. 10, 1903, gage height, 23.1 ft, from rating curve extended above 70,000 ft³/s, by velocity-area studies; maximum gage height, 25.5 ft, Mar. 8, 1904 (ice jam).
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge prior to current degree of regulation, 233,000 ft³/s, Aug. 19, 1955, gage height, 23.91 ft, from floodmarks in gage house, outside gage height was 24.16 ft, from floodmark, from rating curve extended above 130,000 ft³/s, on basis of slope-area measurement of peak flow; maximum discharge since current degree of regulation, 189,000 ft³/s, June 28, 2006, gage height, 21.47 ft, outside gage height was 22.16 ft, from crest-stage gage; maximum gage height, 26.6 ft, Feb. 12, 1981 (ice jam), from floodmarks; minimum observed discharge, 175 ft³/s, Sept. 23, 1908, gage height, 0.6 ft.
