The streamgaging station, Plum Island River at Plum Island, MA (42475200491701), was discontinued October 1, 2017 due to insufficient funds. This station has operated continuously since August 2015 and has provided river stage and discharge data to numerous Federal, State, and local water-management agencies to monitor and manage water resources.
If any Federal, State or local agencies are
interested in providing the additional funds needed to continue operation of
this streamflow gaging station,
Richard Verdi, Chief of Hydrologic Surveillance, New England Water Science Center
LOCATION--Lat 42o24'39", long
71o47'30", Worcester County, Hydrologic Unit
01070004, on left bank at downstream side of bridge on Muddy Pond
Road, 1.5 mi upstream from mouth and 2.5 mi southwest of
DRAINAGE AREA--29.1 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD--Low-flow partial record measurements in water years 1971-73, 1991-93. Continuous stage data recorder April 1994 to current year.
GAGE--Data Collection Platform with telephone telemeter. Elevation of gage is 400 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, from topographic map. Telephone gage-height telemeter at station.
REMARKS--Stage-discharge relation affected by seasonal backwater from aquatic vegetation and occasional backwater from beaver dams. Adjustments for backwater are included in the computed record.
