Station:  Goose Pond (GOPNH)

Full Lake = 19.5 ft. Local = 827.3 ft. above sea level



Goose Pond dam is located at the south end of the lake in Canaan.

The following parameter is currently
being measured at this site:

Goose Pond Stage (Lake Elevation) and water temperature.

Summer Operations
Lake is maintained at full pond (19.5). Full Pond is 19.50 on 
local gauge, or top of upstream front spillway

Seasonal Fall Drawdown
Drawdown of lake is started on or close to Columbus day.
Lake is lowered by 7.5 ft. below full pond (to 12.0 at local gauge). 

Spring Refill
Gate or gates are closed down to fish flow in late January or 
early February. 
Lake is allowed to fill to 19.5 on local gauge after ice out.

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.

This meteorological station is operated and maintained by
the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES).
Most data relayed by satellite or other telemetry have received
