Gauge Description:

Use this gauge with caution as it's in a different, although nearby drainage. In Squires New York Exposed Volume 1, he says 1100 cfs minimum, but on 12/3/06, 2000 cfs at Harrisville corresponded to a minimal level.

This run is runoff dependant, if it has been raining for a couple days it should be good to go, as well as early season runoff. However, it is possible that the section will be dropping even though the gauge is increasing.
