Bacteria levels can increase due to rainfall and runoff, which can be reflected in river flow levels. This graph shows river flow levels for the past 21 days at the nearest U.S. Geological Survey stream gage. The gage is located on the Connecticut River in Holyoke near the I-391 bridge, approximately 9.1 miles downstream of this monitoring site.
