The dam at Mechanicville was rebuilt in 1904 and now has a rounded or ogee section. A discharge curve has been calculated, using a coefficient of discharge derived from United States Geological Survey experiments on models of dams of ogee cross section, as published in Water-Supply Paper 200. During 1910 an automatic gage was installed at this station for the purpose of obtaining more accurate readings of the depth on the crest of the dam. The discharge of the Hudson at Mechanicville is diminished somewhat by water required in operating the Champlain canal. Records at this station are under careful supervision. Information in regard to this station is contained in the annual reports of the State Water Supply Commission and the State engineer and surveyor, State of New York.
