Niantic River Water Committee (NRWC) @ East Lyme Town Hall
Jun 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Thursday, June 7th meeting of the Niantic River Watershed Committee (NRWC) at 6:00 pm at the East Lyme Town Hall to discuss and advocate the re-activation of the USGS streamflow gage on the Latimer Brook. The re-installation of that gage will allow us to monitor the flux of nitrate into NR estuary (which plausibly contributes to eutrophication, hypoxia, anoxia, and biological impairment/dieoff).

The bottom line is that we need to acquire ~$11,000 per year to re-activate the streamflow gage and we are endeavoring to find source(s) of funding.

Can you help? Your participation at the meeting would be appreciated.

Here is an active USGS website with focus on threatened and deactivated stream gages within the national network (of networks).  Be patient to let the website load. It provides an interactive map.  Once loaded you can zoom on the US image map and find the deactivated and threatened gages within CT (former includes Latimer Brook gage).

This 2010 fact sheet is dated (so do not use for current cost figures or distribution of gages throughout the system), but for those that want to delve into the weeds a bit, you will come out with more background about the program: https://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2010/3025/pdf/fs2010-3025.pdf .

Here is a updatable posting by Rivers Alliance that you may find eye opening in terms of how/why people utilize stream gages here in CT (most recent focus was concerning the extended drought conditions of 2017):
