Below is an archive of data for Wachusett Reservoir levels since 2005.

MWRA and the Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation keep a daily watch on reservoir levels at Quabbin (412 billion gallon capacity) and Wachusett (65 billion gallons).

Wachusett levels are kept relatively fixed while Quabbin levels fluctuate with precipitation and watershed runoff.
