REMARKS - Records good except those for estimated daily discharge, which are poor. Flow regulated by mills and reservoirs upstream. Flow affected by diversion from Charles River basin to Neponset River basin by Mother Brook (station 01104000) through Dedham and Hyde Park and by diversions to and from basin for municipal supplies. Falsely high discharges due to tidal rises appear in the real-time discharge record but are removed prior to computation and publication of daily mean discharges provided in the table below. Stage records affected by high tides are not adjusted. Maximum peak stage affected by backwater from tide.
