TREMPER KILL SUB-BASIN
The Tremper Kill watershed is located within three different townships: Andes, Bovina, and Delhi in Delaware County. One population center, Andes, is located within this watershed.
The Tremper Kill mainstem is a fourth order stream. In addition to numerous unnamed tributaries, there are seven major tributaries that enter the mainstem which include Bussey Hollow, Campbell Hollow, Wolf Hollow, Liddle Brook, State Road Hollow, Gladstone Hollow and Bullet Hole. The drainage area of Tremper Kill is approximately 33.52 square miles and the total stream length is 10.5 stream miles from the headwaters to the Pepacton Reservoir. The Tremper Kill mainstem length is 7.1 miles from the Pepacton Reservoir to where it meets with Gladstone Hollow in the Hamlet of Andes.
The valley width is generally broad to very broad with one section that is narrow. The land is predominately forested with some
agricultural fields. The average annual rainfall in the watershed can range from 37-43 inches/year.
Ballantine Park in the hamlet of Andes, and a NYCDEP-owned access close to the Pepacton Reservoir at Shavertown are clearly the best existing access points to this beautiful stream. Hopefully we can find some others in between the two through this process.
