Jones River: Wapping Road, Kingston
    Drainage area: 17.6 square miles
    Weather Station: Plymouth, MA
    Group: Jones River Watershed Association
    Description: This gage was established in 2011 to monitor any changes in streamflow associated with removal of the Wapping Road dam on September 20, 2011. Due to site limitations, DER staff have not established a rating curve for this site. Thus only stage data are displayed here.

Not a lot of river flow right now; but a beautiful flower show on the West bank of our Jones River. We need rain; and hopefully soon.   : 10/3/2013 11:00:00 AM
