Farmington River Flood Stage Graph
Everyone that travels Nod Rd. knows that the Farmington River is right along the road for much of its path. While scenic, Metacon and our neighbors often have to deal with flooding. In 2011 we had 68″ of water INSIDE our clubhouse. We also had FOUR other floods that brought unwanted water inside the building at varying depths.
In order to give our members an opportunity to see just how high the Farmington River is any point in time, and where it’s projected to be, below is a link to show you exactly that.
What is key to know is that (and this is a rough formula, so don’t expect an exact science…) when the river is at 12′, that will translate to standing water on our outdoor range right up to the firing line. At 10′, there will likely be standing water at the berm. We don’t shoot on our outdoor range if there is standing water closer than the 75 yard marker on our safety wall.
