Written by Tom Duffy   

There is a satellite feed from Dolloff Dam to the DES. They monitor water levels, air temperature and "precipitation" based on the readings. Full is about 251 feet above sea level. ( The top of the Mountain shows 1262 feet on most maps). Subtract the readings and that's how far we are from "full". To view the current data following this link: http://www2.des.state.nh.us/RTi_Home/station_information_display.asp?ID=PAWNH&NAME=Pawtuckaway+Lake

The temperature is also posted, taken from the antennae. If we have a rain event, it answers the question " Gee, how much rain did we get? Check it out! This meteorological station is operated and maintained by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES). Most data relayed by satellite or other telemetry have received little or no review. Inaccuracies in the data may be present because of instrument malfunctions or physical changes at the measurement site, including backwater effects due to ice formation.

Although the data presented herein is intended to be an accurate representation of actual conditions, it is presented for informational purposes only and the user is cautioned to use it at his/her own risk. we are about 3.5 feet from full on March 9,2012 when I looked. We will have a LINK BUTTON on the Pawtuckawaylake.com website by April 1.

Hey Boaters! Start your engines! I've got the fever, and I'll see you on the lake! Tom Duffy Other Real-Time Data and Information for Watersheds in New Hampshire web site: http://www2.des.state.nh.us/RTi_Home/
