Montague Police Department: ATTENTION BOATERS: LOWER WATER LEVELS ON RIVER The water level of the Connecticut River may be much lower on Tuesday July 29th and Thursday July 31st due to a relicensing study being conducted by TransCanada Hydro Northeast. The water levels will always remain within the legal limits, between 176 and 185 feet above sea level, however the water level may be much lower than we are used to seeing. Many areas may be too shallow for boating. PLEASE be careful and cautious if you plan on boating and enjoying water sports and water crafts during these days, as well as all other days. Chief Chip Dodge
