Postscript on river volume: By the time the Assabet gets to Maynard's wastewater outlet, it and the upstream wastewater treatement plants have put roughly ten million gallons a day into the river, equating to a bit over ten cubic feet of water per second (cfs). During the low river months of July, August and September the river often has a total flow of less than 40 cfs, some days under 20 cfs, so treated wastewater makes up a significant fraction of total volume.
