Surface Flow Characteristics


Maine experiences varied flow conditions due to its unique hydrology and climate characteristics. Major surface flows include the Penobscot, Kennebec, Androscoggin, and Saco Rivers, which are regulated by large reservoirs and dams. The watershed area of each river is affected by snowpack, precipitation, and temperature, resulting in seasonal flow changes. Coastal rivers are influenced by tides and have a freshwater/saltwater interface. Maine's precipitation is relatively high, but its variability poses challenges in water management. Climate change may cause more extreme weather events, such as heavy rainfalls and droughts, affecting water availability and quality. As a result, monitoring and management of Maine's water resources are crucial for sustaining ecology, economy, and public well-being.
