15 gallons per minute

Fifteen gallons per minute


Alternative measurement units:

0.03 cubic feet per second
508 barrels per day (using 42.5 gallon barrels)

24 acre feet per year
7.9 million gallons per year
12 Olympic swimming pools per year

Area of fair play in Fenway Park
filled a third of the way up
the 37.5 ft high "Green Monster" per year


That makes me wonder how deep the snow is, up against the warning track, from Boston's recent Nor'easter.

Probably not that high (yet) ... but snow, like flowing water, has a way of adding up over time!
