Gauge Site: River right bank just upstream of the BCC takeout on Whitewater Bend Rd.
Correlation: This gauge correlates well with the existing visual gauge on the HWY-31 bridge near the Garden City Park put in which is aproximately three miles upstream. This gauge is calibrated to the same 0' value as the visual gauge upstream. Readings between the gauging sites are usually very close under steady conditions and are typically within +/- .25' under all conditions.
We are always looking for visuals to add more data to this correlation. After getting a visual or making a run please contact us (website or Facebook Messenger) and provide some feedback. Be sure to include the time and date in addition to the visual gauge reading. If you made a run please describe how the run feels at that level, so we can dial in the color changing Low, Good, and High thresholds on the graph.
