USGS 01499500 EAST SIDNEY LAKE AT EAST SIDNEY NY

PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

Click to hidestation-specific text
The 15-minute precipitation data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least once/year, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.

LOCATION.--Lat 42°19'40", long 75°13'42" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Delaware County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02050101, at East Sidney Dam, on Ouleout Creek, 0.3 mi upstream from bridge on County Highway 44 at East Sidney, 4.4 mi upstream from mouth, and 4.5 mi east of Unadilla.
DRAINAGE AREA.--103 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD.--November 1949 to September 1952 (month-end elevations and contents), October 1952 to September 1985 (daily mean elevations and month-end contents), October 2013 to current year (daily mean elevations). Month-end elevations and contents not published October 1985 to September 2013. Records for this period are available in the files of the U.S. Geological Survey. Prior to October 1970, published as "East Sidney Reservoir at East Sidney."
REVISIONS HISTORY.--WSP 2103: Drainage area. WDR NY-80-3: Datum.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929. To convert elevations to NAVD of 1988, subtract 0.41 ft.
COOPERATION.--Capacity table provided by Corps of Engineers, 2001.
REMARKS.--Lake is formed by concrete dam and rockfill dike, completed by Corps of Engineers in June 1950; regulation of outflow began in November 1949; first used for flood regulation on Mar. 28, 1950. Usable capacity, 32,700 acre-ft between elevations 1,115.0 ft (sill of conduits) and 1,203.0 ft (crest of spillway). Dead storage 7 acre-ft. Figures given herein represent total contents. Discharge is controlled by the operation of five gates. Water is stored during high flows and released when downstream conditions warrant. Lake is used for flood control and recreation.
