NOTICE (04/09/2013) -- Budget
shortfall may result in loss of some important precipitation sites.
There is no funding to support 16 precipitation sites in New York,
beginning May 1, 2013 for one site and June 1, 2013 for 15 additional
sites. Although historic data will remain accessible, no new data will
be collected unless one or more new funding partners are found.
Users who are willing to contribute funding to continue operation of
these precipitation sites should contact Rob Breault or Ward Freeman of
the USGS New York Water Science Center at(518-285-5658 or firstname.lastname@example.org).

referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Steuben County, NY,
Hydrologic Unit 02050105, on right bank adjacent to Corning Glass Works
power plant, 500 ft downstream from Bridge Street, 1.7 mi downstream
from Cohocton River, at Corning.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Occasional discharge measurements, water
years 1941, 1968-69. October 1974 to current year.
WDR NY-78-1: 1976, 1977 (m). WDR NY-83-3: 1982
Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 900.00 ft above
NGVD of 1929.
Records good except those for estimated daily
discharges, which are fair. High flows significantly regulated by
upstream reservoirs. During each year a large part of flow from 45.5
of drainage area is diverted upstream from Lake Lamoka
on Mud Creek, an upstream tributary, into Keuka Lake (Oswego River
basin) for power development. Telephone and satellite gage-height
telemeters at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Maximum discharge, since
construction of Tioga, Hammond and Cowanesque Lakes in 1979, about
/s, Jan. 19, 1996; minimum discharge, 95
/s, Sept. 9, 10, 23, 24, 1991, gage height, 14.30
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Flood of June 23, 1972,
reached a stage of 40.71 ft, from floodmark, discharge, 228,000
/s, from peak flows determined at upstream and downstream
stations adjusted for drainage area and channel storage.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD PRIOR TO REGULATION.--
prior to construction of Tioga, Hammond and Cowanesque Lakes in 1979,
/s, Sept. 26, 1975, gage height, 32.46 ft;
minimum discharge, 210 ft3
/s, Aug. 29, 1978.
