    This station is operated in cooperation with:
       NYS Department of Environmental Conservation


    LOCATION.--Lat 42°13'20", long 77°25'04" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Steuben County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02050104, on right bank 250 ft downstream from bridge on County Highway 119, 0.3 mi southeast of West Cameron, and 1.7 mi north of Cameron.
    DRAINAGE AREA.--340 mi2.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--January 1930 to September 1931, February 1937 to September 1970, annual maximum only--1971-72, 1974-2009, October 2009 to current year.
    REVISED RECORDS.--WDR NY-69-1: Drainage area.
    GAGE.--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 datum.
    REMARKS.--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.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, since construction of Almond Lake in 1949, 43,000 ft3/s, June 23, 1972, gage height, 23.48 ft, from rating curve extended above 13,000 ft3/s on basis of slope-area measurement of peak flow; minimum discharge not determined.
    EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 35,000 ft3/s during flood of July 8-9, 1935, on basis of slope-area measurement of peak flow.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION.--Maximum discharge, prior to construction of Almond Lake in 1949, 17,600 ft3/s, May 28, 1946, gage height, 18.09 ft; minimum daily discharge, 12.0 ft3/s, Aug. 28, Aug. 30 - Sept. 3, 1939; minimum instantaneous discharge not determined.
