> Site Information
LOCATION.--Lat 43°18'49.7", long 78°42'55.5" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Niagara County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 04130001, on right bank, 150 ft downstream of dam, 1,000 ft upstream of Fisherman's Park in Burt, and 1.7 mi upstream of mouth.
DRAINAGE AREA.--84.8 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD.--August 2011 to current year.
REVISIONS HISTORY.--Turbidity records for the period June 7 to Sept. 21, 2022, were revised on Dec. 19, 2022, due to a calibration correction that was discovered which changed the required data correction.

REMARKS.--Considerable regulation by power generation at Burt Dam, 150 ft upstream.
Water Year 2014: Records poor.
Water Year 2015: Records fair except those for October to April, which are poor.
Water Year 2016: Records fair except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor.
Water Year 2017: Records fair except those for period of backwater as a result of high water levels on Lake Ontario between Apr. 14 and Aug. 30, which are poor.
Water Year 2018: Records fair except those for period of backwater as a result of high water levels on Lake Ontario between May 12-16 and June 3-8, which are poor.
Water Year 2019: Records fair except those for period of backwater as a result of high water levels on Lake Ontario between Apr. 27 and Sept. 30, which are poor.
Water Year 2020: Records fair except those for period of backwater as a result of high water levels on Lake Ontario between Apr. 7 and June 24, which are poor.
Water Years 2021-23: Records good except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 2,190 ft³/s, May 6, 2017, gage height, 6.65 ft; minimum discharge, 0.97 ft³/s, Sept. 29, 2017, gage height, 2.35 ft (result of regulation); minimum gage height, 1.93 ft, Nov. 8, 2014, and July 27, 28, 2016, (result of regulation).
