Effective at 1200 Coordinated Universal Time on November 6, 2023,
the National Weather Service (NWS) will cease river flood
forecasts and warning services for the Soucook River in Pembroke
New Hampshire due to a loss in observation data. The USGS was
forced to remove the river stage and discharge gage at Pembroke
due to a loss of funding. Real-time streamflow data is essential
to the issuance of accurate river, flood stage, and water supply
forecasts that are issued by the NWS. The absence of the river
gage information necessitated the termination of all river
forecasts for the Soucook River. The NWS will continue to issue
the more general Flood and Flash Flood Warnings as warranted for
un-gaged streams and rivers.

If you require additional information about the effect of
discontinuing forecast services, please feel free to contact
Senior Service Hydrologist Sarah Jamison at
or call (207) 688-3223.
