Maximum known stages and discharges at 1, sites on streams within New York are tabulated. Stage data are reported in feet. Discharges are reported as cubic feet per second and in cubic feet per second per square mile. In order to convert water height (or “stage”, usually expressed as feet) into a volume of water (or “discharge”, usually expressed as cubic feet per second), USGS hydrographers must establish a relationship between them. This stage-discharge relationship is called a rating curve.   Stream stage (also called stage or gage height) is the height of the water surface, in feet, above an established altitude where the stage is zero. The zero level is arbitrary, but is often close to the streambed. You can get an idea of what stream stage . White Stream would consist of a number of legs with capacity of 8–9 billion cubic metres ( × 10 ^ 9 – × 10 ^ 9 cu ft) of each. The diameter of the Georgian section would be 42 inches (1, mm) for the onshore section and 28 inches ( mm) for the offshore section. [10]Country: Georgia, Romania, Ukraine.
