SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - July 1928 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Telephone telemetry at station. Satellite telemetry at station. Adjustments to datum of gage, referenced to National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD29), are listed in the following table; to convert the gage height record for the time periods listed below, apply the following conversions in order to determine elevation in NGVD29 or North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88):
        Time Period              To NGVD29, in ft            To NAVD88, in ft      
Jul. 5, 1928 - Apr. 12, 1983          +38.48                      +37.75
Apr. 13, 1983 - Feb. 29, 1984         +28.48                      +27.75
Mar. 1, 1984 - Nov. 28, 1986          +37.48                      +36.75
Nov. 28, 1986 - present               +28.48                      +27.75
Additionally, the annual water year peak gage heights published on the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) peak streamflow website (http://nwis.waterdata.usgs.gov/ct/nwis/peak/?site_no=01184000&agency_cd=USGS) have been adjusted to the datum in use for each of the periods listed in the table below:
        Time Period                      Gage height change, in ft
