 First Herring Brook Watershed Initiative

Clapp Brook: Old Country Way, Scituate
    Drainage area: 0.3 square miles
    Group: First Herring Brook Watershed Initiative
    Description: This site was established in 2005 to determine inputs from the Clapp Brook tributary to First Herring Brook. Monitoring at this site also documented impacts from construction of the Greenbush Commuter Rail line, which affected stream channel and drainage area. As of May 2011, this site is no longer being monitored.

NOTE: DATA ARE PROVISIONAL AND SUBJECT TO REVISION. Some extreme high flows may not be displayed on the discharge chart if the staff gage is not calibrated for those flows. Currently the rating curve at this site is calibrated to cover stages up to 11.4 feet and discharge up to 11.6 cubic feet per second.
