Cayadutta Creek flows into the Mohawk River near Fonda, New York.[1] The Indian meaning of Cayadutta is "rippling waters" or "shallow water running over stones". This stream has commercial and historical importance as the cities of Johnstown and Gloversville lie on its banks.[2]

Geology[edit]

The Cayadutta Creek, or some similarly located stream, was one of the ancient watercourses which drained the southern Adirondack slopes.[3]
