Graphical representation of flood inundation for NWS flood categories are based on steady state hydraulic modeling of water surface elevations for incremented discharges. Map shows approximate inundation areas for given water surface elevations and should not be used for navigation or permitting or other legal purposes, but strictly as a planning reference tool.

Site-specific information:
A report discussing the technical aspects of these maps can be found here. These maps represent unobstructed flow conditions and may be unrepresentative when ice jams and/or debris are in place.

Extended rating:
Rating Curve Extension - The Rating Curve Extension is calculated by using either a linear, logarithmic, or hydraulic technique to extend the rating curve above the currently established relationship between stage and flow.

22 Maximum estimated flood of July 8, 1935. Stage estimated by an Army Corps of Engineers hydrologic study. Widespread inundation of the village occurred from Chenango Street to the river. In addition to extreme flooding of the village, flood waters would approach the east side of Route 12, north of the Village of Greene.
21.4 Height of the gage floor, and maximum stage that gauge can read.
21.16 Record flood crest as measured by the USGS stream gauge from June, 2006. Widespread flooding throughout the Village of Greene.
21.09 September, 2011 flood. Widespread inundation in many areas of the Village of Greene. Significant inundation of residences between N. Canal and N. Chenango Streets to the north of Scott Ave. Flood waters several feet deep around the village.
18 Major Flood Stage. Widespread flooding reaches first floor of homes on North Chenango, Water, Monell, Mill and Elm Streets in the Village of Greene. Backwater from Birdsall Creek can cause flooding between Elm Street, N. Canal Street and Scott Avenue. Flood waters close off Cherry Street.
15 Moderate flood stage, the ball flats in Greene are inundated, including Ball Flats Road. Water Street is closed with homes on the east side of the street beginning to flood. Flooding affects homes on Monell Street and Monell Street Extension. Water spreads into the backyards of homes along N. Chenango Street. Birdsall Creek may be backing up along N. Chenango and Elm Street.
14 Water Street and Stillwater Road in Greene are flooded.
13 Flood stage. River overflows onto low spots across Water Street near the gauge house, and spreads into the ball flats.
