ICE EFFECTS ON STREAMFLOW

The formation of ice on rivers can cause discharge values to appear unusually high. Display of these erroneous discharge data may result in improper assessment of flow conditions and misuse of the data. For this reason, display of discharge values for streams significantly affected by ice may be disabled from view. Display of discharge data will resume when ice conditions are no longer present. Discharge values for streams minimally affected by ice will continue to be displayed. Flows for streams with these conditions appear to increase during the night and decrease to near-base-line conditions around midday. To estimate the correct discharge for these streams, use the flow rate that corresponds to the bottom of the discharge curve, rather than the peak that corresponds to the top of the curve. Note that this method of estimation is possible only when no surface runoff is occurring. Daily mean discharges for periods of both significant and minimal ice-effect will be estimated and published in the Annual Water-Data Report for the water year in which they occurred.

PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

Click to hidestation-specific text

LOCATION--Lat 42° 38’18", long 72° 43’32", Franklin County, Hydrologic Unit 01080203, on right bank in Shattuckville, 1.2 mi south of Griswoldville, and 1.3 mi upstream from mouth.
DRAINAGE AREA--89.0 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD--Discharge: October 1939 to current year. October and November 1939 monthly discharge only, published in WSP 1301.
Water-quality records: Water years 1957, 1967–69, 1994–95.
REVISED RECORDS--WSP 1111: 1945(M). WDR MA-RI-84-1: drainage area.
GAGE--Data Collection Platform with satellite telemeter. Datum of gage is 457.91 ft above North American Vertical Datum of 1988.
REMARKS--Diurnal fluctuation at times caused by mill upstream; because storage capacity is small, daily flows are not affected appreciably. Prior to 1950, greater regulation by mill.
COOPERATION BY--Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Office of Water Resources.
