Station: Kingswood Lake (Brookfield)

Kingswood Lake dam is located at the south/east end of 
the lake in Brookfield.

The following parameter is currently
being measured at this site:

Kinswood Lake Stage (Lake Elevation)

Summer Operations
Lake level is maintained at full pond. Full pond is equal to zero on 
local gauge at dam, or top of logs at dam.

Seasonal Fall Drawdrawn
Drawdown of lake begins around Columbus day. 
Stoplogs are removed from dam, slowly, to try and achieve a 
four foot drawdown. In most years the full four foot drawdown is not met. 
Three to three and a half feet drawdown is the usual target level.

Spring Refill
Most of the stop logs are put back in the dam at the begining of 
the new year. 
Lake will slowly refill over winter months to reach 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.
