Surface Flow Characteristics

Vermont's flow conditions are influenced by its hydrology and climate characteristics. The major surface flows in the state include the Connecticut River, Lake Champlain, and the Winooski River. These surface flows are often impacted by snowpack and rainfall in the watersheds that feed them. Vermont's reservoirs and dams, such as the Waterbury Reservoir and the Northfield Falls Dam, play an important role in regulating flow and providing hydroelectric power. The state also experiences occasional flooding, particularly in the spring when snowmelt combines with heavy rainfall. To manage these risks, Vermont has implemented a statewide flood hazard mitigation program. Overall, Vermont's flow conditions are complex and dynamic, reflecting the state's unique topography, climate, and water resources.
