This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release contains estimated daily mean streamflow for Broadstreet Hollow Brook at Highway 28 at Allaben NY (USGS station ID 01362232) and Bushnellsville Creek at State Highway 42 at Shandaken NY (USGS station ID 0136219702) based on methods in Gazoorian (2015) and available discharge data from West Kill near West Kill NY (USGS station ID 01349810). Instantaneous streamflow and estimated instantaneous suspended-sediment loads for Hollow Tree Brook at State Highway 214 at Lanesville NY (USGS station ID 01362345) were derived from streamflow data from Hollow Tree Brook at Lanesville (01362342), methods in Lumia and others (2006) and Rasmussen and others (2009), and available...

This dataset has been archived; it has been superseded by version 4.0 (March 2022) which can be found at https://doi.org/10.5066/F70C4V25. The dataset is composed of two data tables containing information from electrofishing surveys conducted in the Catskill and Adirondack regions. The first data table contains fish collection information and the second data table contains information on the sampled reaches. First posted September 25, 2018, ver. 1.0 Revised July 2019, ver. 2.0 Revised November 2020, ver. 3.0 Version 3.0: This version of the dataset has the same structure (two data tables containing the same column headings) as Versions 2.0 and 1.0 but includes the addition of data from electrofishing surveys...

Background The invasive diatom Didymosphenia geminata (didymo) has historically been a wide-spread, but rare, micro algae found in moderately flowing cold-water streams of North America, Europe, Asia, and (more recently) New Zealand. Demographic patterns of didymo have recently changed resulting in greater spatial coverage and temporal persistence (e.g. blooms) in streams worldwide. Didymo blooms can form dense “woven fabric” aggregate up to 20 cm think, that trap algae, macroinvertebrates, detritus and other debris. The recent discovery of didymo in parts of New York State, including the Upper Esopus Creek in 2009, is concerning because blooms can affect benthic habitat, river hydraulics, the structure and function...

Introduction The upper Esopus Creek watershed is located in the eastern Catskill Mountains of New York State and covers 497 km2 from Slide Mountain, the highest peak in the Catskills at 1,274 m, to the Ashokan Reservoir at 193 m elevation (fig. 1). Suspended sediment and turbidity are primary water quality concerns in the Ashokan Reservoir watershed, part of the New York City Catskill-Delaware water supply system that supplies more than 10 million people a day with clean drinking water. Stream corridor assessments of tributaries to the Upper Esopus Creek by Ulster County Soil and Water Conservation District, New York City Department of Environmental Protection, and State University of New York at New Paltz summer...

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release contains batch formatted annual peak streamflow data (PkFlows_AllSites.txt) for the respective periods of record (through the 2020 or 2021 water year) for seven USGS streamgages in the upper Esopus Creek watershed in upstate New York. This data release also contains batch formatted specification (PkFlows_AllSites.psf) and output (PEAKFLOWS_ALLSITES.PRT) files from log-Pearson type III (LPIII) flood-frequency analysis of the annual peak streamflow data from version 7.3 of the USGS PeakFQ software (https://water.usgs.gov/software/PeakFQ/), and a csv file (FloodFrequencyEstimates.csv) with estimates of flood magnitudes for selected annual exceedance probabilities from...

Background - Turbid waters originating in the Schoharie Reservoir allegedly impair habitat and resident trout populations in Upper Esopus Creek; however, to date no scientific studies have documented adverse affects of altered thermal, suspended sediment (turbidity), and flow regimes on survival, growth, or behavior of trout or the health of their populations. The 424 mi2 Esopus Creek watershed is a tributary to the Hudson River in the south-central Catskill Mountains of New York State and is often considered to be two systems separated by the Ashokan Reservoir. The Upper Esopus Creek is considered the reach between its source, Winisook Lake, and the reservoir. Flows in the Upper Esopus Creek are supplemented by...

Problem - The Esopus Creek is located in the Catskill Mountains of New York State and is part of the New York City (NYC) drinking water supply system. The basin was dammed in 1915 to form the Ashokan Reservoir splitting the creek into Upper (upstream of the reservoir) and Lower segments. The Schoharie Reservoir, located 27 miles north of the Ashokan Reservoir, supplies water to Upper Esopus Creek via the Shandaken tunnel. Waters from the Schoharie watershed enter Upper Esopus Creek at the Shandaken portal and travel 18 km before entering the Ashokan Reservoir. The two reservoirs account for approximately 40% of NYC’s mean annual water supply. Waters from the portal have been the focus of controversy and legal action,...

This data release contains continuous (15-minute interval) turbidity data from the upper Esopus Creek Watershed in the Catskill Mountain Region of New York State. The upper Esopus watershed drains to the Ashokan Reservoir, part of the New York City (NYC) drinking water supply system. Turbidity is a primary water-quality concern in the NYC water-supply system, particularly in the upper Esopus Creek watershed.

This dataset contains the results from aging and back-calculation of length-at-age of scale samples from 502 Rainbow Trout captured in the Ashokan Reservoir between 1952 and 2017. The first six columns contain collection information including an assigned fish number, the year and period of capture, the basin of the Ashokan Reservoir from which a fish was captured, and the length and weight of the fish when it was captured. The final three columns present results from the aging and back-calculation procedures. Multiple rows of information often correspond to an individual fish and are designated by the "Fish number" column.

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program, investigated the feasibility of bedload monitoring in the upper Esopus Creek watershed, Ulster and Greene Counties, New York (NY), from 2017 to 2020. Traditional bedload samples were collected at two locations: Birch Creek at Big Indian, NY, and Stony Clove at Jansen Rd at Lanesville, NY. Active and passive tracers were used at Stony Clove at Jansen Rd at Lanesville, NY, to measure bed material displacement associated with storm runoff.
