Unfortunately, the USGS gauge on the Dead River will be taken out of service on October 31, 2014.

Since 2003, this gauge has provided many of us with valuable data regarding the level of our lake.   Both historical and instantaneous lake level data has been available at the USGS site.  The ALIC website,, includes a link to the USGS page for this gauge.

The USGS page for the Dead River gauge currently includes the following alert:

Due to lack of funding, data from this station will be discontinued on October 31, 2014. Please contact Greg Stewart at 207-622-8201 x118 or for any questions.

ALIC has already taken steps to capture and save as much of this data as possible for archival purposes.  But, if you want to take advantage of the full set of analytical tools available at the USGS site, our understanding is that you must do it before October 31.
