Powwow Pond dam is located at the south/east end of the 
lake in East Kingston.

NOTE: THE FALL OF 2007 POWWOW POND WILL HAVE A THREE FOOT DRAWDOWN
STARTING ON OCTOBER 1st.


The following parameter is currently
being measured at this site:

Powwow Pond Stage (Lake Elevation), CFS release, percipitation, 
air temperature, humidity,and lake temperature. Note: Precipitation
is not recorded in the winter months from October to April

 
Summer Operations
Water level stays at full pond. Full pond equals top of flash boards.


Seasonal Fall Drawdown
Lake level is lowered by one foot by removing stoplogs, 
then removing flash boards from the spillway.
This operation starts on November 1st of each year.


Spring Refill
Near the end of spring runoff, flash boards and stoplogs are 
replaced to achieve full pond.


Note: Water levels generally fluctuate in response to precipitation,
snowmelt, drought or other meteorological conditions. Target water levels 
are maintained by the adjustment of flows at the dam in response 
to these conditions.
