Gauge Description:

There is no direct gauge for the Upper Citico.
The best indication is to check the gauge for the Upper Tellico.
If the Tellico is cranking (1000 cfs+ or 3.5 feet and rising on the gauge) then the Citico is probably running.
It also depends on where the rain falls, so use this as an indicator only.
