Gauge Site: Cherokee Co Rd 275 Put-in Bridge
Correlation: The StreamBeam gauge is installed on the same bridge as the existing visual gauge, but it reads a narrower cross section of the river than the painted gauge. There appears to be a strong linear correlation between the two gauges, but it is not a 1:1 relationship. See the link to the a correlation chart below.
Correlation Chart With Johnnies Painted Gauge
The trend line on the correlation chart and its equation at the top of the chart can be used to estimate a visual gauge reading (y-axis) based on a given StreamGauge reading (x-axis). To solve mathematically, use a given StreamBeam gauge reading (in ft) as & "X"; to solve for the estimated painted gauge value (in inches). When the correlation chart is updated with new readings, the trend line and its equation updates automatically.
