Gulf Brook: Oak Hill Street, Pepperell
    Drainage area: 0.95 square miles
    Weather Station: Pepperell, MA
    Group: Nashua River Watershed Association
    Description: This site was established in 2004 as a reference site and was incorporated into a study of nutrient loading from different land use types by the Nashua River Watershed Association. Segments of Gulf Brook downstream of the gage have repeatedly run dry in the summer. The rating curve shifted due to a culvert replacement in August 2011.
