Parker River: Route 97, Georgetown
    Drainage area: 6.82 square miles
    Group: Parker River Clean Water Association
    Description: This site was established in 2005 to follow up on recommendations from the Parker River Low Flow Study to further document low flows in the Parker River. Georgetown's wells are located just upstream of this site. The USGS established a real-time gage (#01100890) at this location but that was discontinued in 2009 due to backwater from beaver activity. RIFLS volunteers monitored this gage most recently in 2011 but this site is not currently 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 4.3 feet and discharge up to 86 cubic feet per second.
