The Little River at Blue Pond gage was recalibrated after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. Here is the new correlation for the Blue Pond gage and the Hwy 35 bridge gage. These levels should be considered in flux, because the Blue Pond gage will be recalibrated in the near future, as water levels permit. (3/1/05)
Blue Pond = 35 Bridge
500-650 cfs = -2.0
650-800 cfs = -1.0
800-1100 cfs = 0.0
1100-1300 cfs = 2.0
1400-1500 cfs = 4.0
1600-1700 cfs = 6.0
2000-2100 cfs = 7.0
2100-2200 cfs = 8.0
2600-2700 cfs = 12.0
I have an Excel 2000 spreadsheet that predicts the levels for Little River and several other rivers in the southeast. If you
When checking the phone gage, the number prompts have been changed. Press 4, then 2, then 2.,
AL Water Line 800-525-3711, 6, wait for warning announcement to end, 2, 2. Readings is in cfs. USGS gauge at Canyon Mouth Park, 4.5' = 1100 cfs
Hwy 35 bridge gauge on SE piling, seems that cfs-1100/100 = inches on piling. This formula changes yearly, depending on the sedement at the USGS gage at Canyon Mouth Park, and this formula was based on observation in fall 2004 by Rob Maxwell.
Permits are not required for this reach.
