USGS Gage Information
NOTICE: Due to extensive deterioration of the existing Parsons gage structure, a new gage shelter has been installed 1700 feet upstream of the current location on the Holly Meadows Bridge. Gage-height data are being collected concurrently at both locations, at the same datum, and a new stage-discharge rating is currently available for the new gaging location above. There is not a direct relationship to the stage at the this gage compared to this new gage upstream. The flood stage at the Holly Meadows bridge will be different than the old gage. Plans are to terminate data collection at this location during the fall of 2016. On October 31,2016, forecasts for the new gage will start and stop for the old gage.
