The level of Lake Winnisquam is currently at elevation 480.47. The release rate is 
approximately 100 cfs. Flow from the lake will be at this rate to allow for work 
to be performed at a hydrolectric plant downstream today, but will be increased to  
250 cfs within Friday morning. 


These flows could change due to weather, or other operational factors.

Silver Lake

The level of Silver Lake is 463.51. The level will drop a bit today due to decreased 
releases from upstream, but will come back up to around 464 within the next few days.

Over the next 6 weeks, daily flucuations in water level are possible due to periodic 
shutdowns of the hydroelectric plants upstream to allow for eel and herring passage.
