Station: Horn Pond (Wakefield)

Horn Pond dam is located at the south end of the lake in Wakefield,
on the NH/ME border.

The following parameter is currently
being measured at this site:

Horn Pond Stage (Lake Elevation)

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

Seasonal Fall Drawdown
The lake level is gradually lowered after Columbus day to one and 
a half feet below full pond level. 
This is done by removal of stoplogs at the dam.

Spring Refill
Lake is refilled after spring runoff, 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.
