Station: Angle Pond (Sandown)

Angle Pond dam is located at the south/east end of the lake in Sandown.
The following parameter is currently
being measured at this site:

Angle Pond Stage (Lake Elevation)

Summer Operations
Water level is maintained at full pond. Full pond equals 
top of spillway at the dam.

Seasonal Fall Drawdown
There is a short drawdown season; the lake level is dropped 
by two feet from Columbus day to December 1st.
Then all stoplogs are put back in the dam.

Spring Refill
Water level rises gradually over the winter months after stoplogs
are replaced. 
Full pond is usually achieved just before ice out on 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.
