USGS Maine Office celebrating over 100 years of streamgage record for this station.

Station operated in cooperation with the Maine Emergency Management Agency, the Maine River Flow Advisory Commission, and Brookfield Renewable.
Gage height data are measured down from the bridge deck and not using historical methods from the water pressure above a defined point in the river. Therefore, water level data will read higher when ice is present on the water surface.

Period of Record - Discharge: November 1901 to current year. Daily gage height and monthly discharge only for November 1901 to September 1902. Prior to 1904, published as "at Montague."

The National Weather Service flood stage for this site is 18.0 ft. (Forecast)
