Rondout Creek is a 63.3-mile-long (101.9 km) tributary of the Hudson River in Ulster and Sullivan counties, New York, United States. It rises on Rocky Mountain in the eastern Catskills, flows south into Rondout Reservoir, part of New York City's water supply network, then into the valley between the Catskills and the Shawangunk Ridge, where it goes over High Falls and finally out to the Hudson at Kingston, receiving along the way the Wallkill River.

dbo:abstract
  • Der Rondout Creek ist ein 102 km langer Nebenfluss des Hudson River im US-Bundesstaat New York. Er entspringt am im Ulster County in den östlichen Catskills, fließt südwärts in das und in das Tal zwischen den Catskills und der Shawangunk Ridge, wo er über die stürzt und sich schließlich bei Kingston in den Hudson River ergießt. Dank des Wallkill River misst das Einzugsgebiet des Rondout Creek 2850 Quadratkilometer und umfasst das gesamte Gebiet bis hin zum Sussex County, New Jersey. Die recht hohen Berge an seinem Oberlauf und um das Reservoir, in dem das Wasser von drei anderen Trinkwasserreservoirs zusammengeführt wird, tragen zu der Abflussmenge des Creeks bei. Das Gewässer wurde im 19. Jahrhundert wirtschaftlich bedeutend, als der Delaware and Hudson Canal seinem Verlauf folgend zwischen und dem heute zu Kingston gehörenden gebaut wurde, Letzteres rasch zum nördlichen Hafen an dem Kanal wuchs. Auch heute ist der Creek von wirtschaftlichem Interesse, nicht nur wegen des Trinkwasserspeichers, sondern auch wegen des Angelsports und der anderen Möglichkeiten zur Naherholung, die er gewährt.

  • Rondout Creek is a 63.3-mile-long (101.9 km) tributary of the Hudson River in Ulster and Sullivan counties, New York, United States. It rises on Rocky Mountain in the eastern Catskills, flows south into Rondout Reservoir, part of New York City's water supply network, then into the valley between the Catskills and the Shawangunk Ridge, where it goes over High Falls and finally out to the Hudson at Kingston, receiving along the way the Wallkill River. The name of Rondout Creek comes from the fort, or redoubt, that was erected near its mouth. The Dutch equivalent of the English word redoubt (meaning a fort or stronghold) is reduyt. In the Dutch records of Wildwyck, however, the spelling used to designate this same fort is invariably Ronduyt during the earliest period, with the present form rondout (often capitalized) appearing as early as November 22, 1666. The Rondout Creek became economically important in the 19th century when the Delaware and Hudson Canal followed closely alongside it from Napanoch to the village of Rondout, now part of Kingston, which grew rapidly as the canal's northern port. Today it is important not only for the reservoir, but for the fishing and other recreational opportunities it provides. Due to the Wallkill, it drains a vast area stretching over 1,100 square miles (2,850 km2) all the way down to Sussex County, New Jersey. The high mountains around its upper course and the reservoir, which collects water from three others, also add to its flow. (en)
