Station: Great Pond (Kingston)

Great Pond dam is located at the south end of the lake in Kingston.

The following parameter is currently
being measured at this site:

Great Pond Stage (Lake Elevation)

Summer Operations
Water level is maintained at full pond. Full pond eqauls zero 
on local gauge.

Seasonal Fall Drawdown
Lake level is dropped one foot by removing stoplogs from dam, 
after Columbus day.
In most years the one foot draw down is not achieved due to 
the water hydrology of the downstream flows.

Spring Refill
Stoplogs are put in after spring runoff 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.
