ICE EFFECTS ON STREAMFLOW - During winter, ice formation may cause
stage and discharge values to appear higher than expected. Ice effects
may be minor (occurring only at night and early morning) with baseline
flows obvious, or the effects may be major (stage constantly increases
over several days or weeks) resulting in greatly erroneous discharge.
Streamgages experiencing minor ice conditions will continue to display
stage and discharge values to enable users to estimate the approximate
base-line stage and discharge. Streamgages experiencing major ice
conditions will have the discharge record temporarily disabled to
prevent use of erroneous discharge values. The discharge record will
resume when it is determined that ice conditions are no longer present.
Daily mean discharges during periods of ice effect will be estimated
after detailed data analysis.
NOTICE (11/28/2017) -- Data collection at the following gage
will be discontinued on December 31, 2017 due to funding reductions
from partner agencies. Although historic data will remain accessible,
no new data will be collected unless one or more new funding partners
are found. Users who can contribute funding for the non-Federal share
of costs to continue operation of this streamgage should contact
Timothy Sargent at the USGS New England Water Science Center -
Connecticut Office (860-291-6754) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTICE (11/01/2017) -- Starting on February 01, 2018
vertical gage datum at the following locations will be referenced to
North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88), this datum reference
will replace the current vertical gage datum reference National
Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29). Users with questions about
these streamgages should contact Timothy Sargent, at the USGS New
England Water Science Center - Connecticut Office(860-291-6754) or
email at email@example.com.
