Levels in tidal waters are measured from mean sea level, not from the river bed. They can, therefore, be negative, and do not give any indication of water depth. Tidal levels are not necessarily updated frequently, and may not reflect tidal movements throughout the day.

The normal level of the Boston Grand Sluice Automation Monitoring Station in average weather conditions is between -1.64m and 5.59m. It has been between these levels for at least 150 days in the past year.

The usual range of the Boston Grand Sluice Automation Monitoring Station in more extreme weather conditions is between -1.42m and 4.25m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.
