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
Water Years 2014-16: Records good except those for estimated daily
discharges, which are poor.
