Ground-water diversions can affect the natural flow regime. Out-of-basin flow diversion for municipal supply for the town of Watertown.

EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - The maximum peak flow of 29,400 ft³/s was obtained from the rating curve extended above 1,200 ft³/s on basis of computation of peak flow over dam at 16.0 ft. and by slope-area measurement of flow. The maximum stage of 21.80 ft. was from flood marks. Minimum instantaneous discharge: 2.5 ft³/s, Aug. 30-31, 1966.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - water years 1961, 1965-74.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD - Daily water temperature: water years 1961, 1967. Daily specific conductance: water years 1960-61. Daily pH: water years 1960-61. Daily iron: water years 1960-61.
