USGS River Ice Monitoring System

The USGS in Augusta, Maine, is working with the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and local emergency management officials to provide more complete information about river and ice conditions in areas of ice accumulation on the Kennebec River near Augusta. The USGS is providing real-time river stage data and real-time pictures of ice conditions at this location. The Army Corps of Engineers and the National Weather Service are evaluating these locations for potential ice-jam formation and river flooding during spring high flows.
