GAGE.--Acoustic velocity meter and water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929.
REMARKS.--Flow regulated by Oswego (Barge) Canal Lock 1 and Eagle Creek Renewable Energy power station. A large amount of natural storage and some artificial regulation is afforded by the many large lakes and the Erie (Barge) and Oswego (Barge) Canal systems in the river basin. Oswego River basin receives water from Erie (Barge) Canal through Lock 32 near Pittsford. Water may be diverted into or received from Mohawk River basin through summit level of Erie (Barge) Canal between New London and Utica. Nearly all of the flow from 14 mi2 of the Tioughnioga River basin may be diverted into De Ruyter Reservoir in Oswego River basin. From 1931-98, a large part of flow from 45.5 mi2 of Mud Creek drainage area (Susquehanna River basin) had been diverted into Keuka Lake (Oswego River basin) for power generation. Water Years 2014-15: Records good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are fair.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum daily discharge, 26,500 ft3/s, Apr. 29, 2011; minimum daily discharge, 201 ft3/s, Apr. 17, 2012. Maximum and minimum instantaneous discharges not determined.
