Gauge Information

Gauge Site: Shut in Gap Rd (Take Out)

PRELIMINARY DATA SHOWN. Current LOW, GOOD, and HIGH threshold levels are preliminary, and we need your input to dial these in! The gauge datum (0' point) and the thresholds will be updated as we receive visuals and feedback from the community.

Correlation: The StreamBeam gauge is installed on the same bridge as the existing visual gauge. The StreamBeam gauge reads the water level at the center of the bridge and the visual gauge is near the river left bank. Due to the gradient and dynamic flow under the bridge, the two gauges do not read the exact same value at all levels, but there is a strong linear correlation between the two gauges. The StreamBeam gauge is set to read the same value as the painted gauge at a level of 2.5'. See a link to the correlation chart below.
