Gauge Description:

Note that the USGS gage in North Springfield is downstream of a USACE flood control dam; and therefore actually only shows what the dam is releasing. It can not be relied upon for accurate river levels in the Cavendish section.  CFS readings from the gage should just be used as an indicator of general watershed conditions.  For a more accurate reading go to the USACE North Springfield Dam Report Page and look at the "inflow" number.

The USGS gage has been set to a very wide (300-3000) flow range because of this.  Treat any level information is approximate unless verified.
