USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 93-4076


Description, qualifying comments, and acceptable water years.

Drainage area is 52.7 sq.mi.                            Datum is 399.30 ft.
Located in hydrologic unit 01080206 at Latitude: 42:15:31N  Longitude: 072:52:23W
Station is in the state of MA (county code 015) and serviced by the MA office.
Channel slope is 79.00 feet/mile
Stream length is 19.50 miles
Mean basin elevation is 1420.00 feet above National Geodetic Vertical Datum
Percent of contributing drainage area covered by 
   Storage: 0.44%     Lakes: 0.01%        Forests: 66.00%     Glaciers: N.A.%
Soil infiltration index is 4.00 inches
Annual precipitation is 48.20 inches
Precipitation intensity is 3.20 inches/24 hour (expected on the average once each two years)
January minimum temperature is 11.00 degrees Fahrenheit
Comments and qualifications on the data:
   Records are unsuitable for analysis at less than monthly resolution due to diurnal fluctuation at low flow imposed
   by upstream mills. Records affected by reservoir regulation starting with water year 1965.

Monthly and longer averages for 54 water years are acceptable (some whole years and all partial years are excluded).
A water year with acceptable data is indicated by an asterisk in the time line, which spans 1874 through 1988.
