Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 1,037.71 ft above
NGVD of 1929 (levels by Corps of Engineers). Prior to February 1937,
nonrecording gage on highway bridge 250 ft upstream at same
Records good except those for estimated daily
discharges, which are fair. Since March 1940, flood flows regulated by
Arkport Reservoir (see station 01521000), and since June 1949, by
Almond Lake (station 01523000); normal regulation occasionally
sufficient to affect figures of monthly runoff. Telephone and satellite
gage-height telemeters at station.
