Several sources of streamflow and flood data exist for the Naugatuck River. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) maintains two gauges that measure streamflow and flood information - one in Thomaston and one in Beacon Falls. The USGS gauges record two streamflow measurements: 'gauge height' and 'discharge.'

Thomaston Gauge (FEET PER SECOND):

Thomaston Gauge (HEIGHT):

Beacon Falls Gauge (FEET PER SECOND):

Beacon Falls Gauge (HEIGHT):

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) also maintains a very useful website summarizing available streamflow and flood data for the Naugatuck River at Beacon Falls.
