Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

DRAINAGE AREA - 2.16 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1997 to September 1998, November 2011 to present for QW, discontinued for discharge October, 2015.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder with telephone telemeter. Elevation of gage is 175 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, from topographic map.
COOPERATION - City of Cambridge, Water Department.
REMARKS - Records fair except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - October 1997 to September 1998, November 2011 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Specific conductance and water temperature water-quality monitor.
REMARKS - Records for water temperature are rated as excellent.
