REMARKS - Records fair except those for estimated daily discharges, which are poor. Flow at times includes overflow and leakage from Johns Pond. Occasional regulation by cranberry bog upstream. Occasional backwater from tidal surge. Surface drainage, from topography, about 2.58 mi², excludes area drained by Johns Pond. This stream drains from a ground-water basin which is larger or smaller than, and not coincident with, the surface-water basin.
