Additional Information Collapse
On October 1, 2010 this gauge was moved 1500 feet upstream from its previous location (Washington Street bridge) and 500 feet above of a low head dam. The zero datum was not changed. However, because of this move crest values before and after this date may not correlate and have thus been removed with the exception of the record crest in 2008.

The graph below is from the USGS and represents river discharge.

How low could the river get?
Collaborative Agencies Collapse
The National Weather Service prepares its forecasts and other services in collaboration with agencies like the US Geological Survey, US Bureau of Reclamation, US Army Corps of Engineers, Natural Resource Conservation Service, National Park Service, ALERT Users Group, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and many state and local emergency managers across the country.
