The Nilometer measured the height of the annual Nile flood. Sixteen cubits was considered the ideal height of the annual Nile flood. Less could mean drought or famine. Even in modern times, grand celebrations were held when the flood reached 16 cubits.

The peak flood occurred at the end of August, which explains why the Egyptian year began on 29 August.
