Background The Upper Esopus Creek, a popular trout-fishing and recreational stream in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, received historic flooding from Tropical Storm Irene on August 28, 2011. Streamflows approached or surpassed the 1% annual exceedance probability (>100 year) flood levels at several USGS streamgages in this basin. Short-term flood impacts on biological assemblages have been assessed in several studies, but longer-term effects, recovery, and analysis of factors affecting ecosystem resiliency have rarely been investigated. The U. S. Geological Survey (USGS), New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP), and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County (CCEUC) collaborated on...

The upper Esopus Creek is the primary tributary to the Ashokan Reservoir, part of the New York City (NYC) water supply system. Suspended-sediment concentration (ssc) and turbidity are primary water-quality concerns in the NYC water-supply system, particularly in the upper Esopus Creek watershed. In 2016 the NYC Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Geological Survey entered into a collaborative agreement to conduct a comprehensive study of suspended sediment and turbidity in the upper Esopus Creek watershed. Objectives included ssc, streamflow, and turbidity monitoring, and development of turbidity-ssc regression equations to estimate ssc from continuous turbidity measurements. Cross-section and point...
