A gauge installed as part of the Ohio Edison Dam hydroelectric project is the basis for the references to flow rates discussed below. This gauge is accessed via the Advanced Hydro Solutions (AHS) website by clicking here or directly using this link. The AHS gage is updated every 30 minutes, is not influenced by contributions from the Little Cuyahoga River, and is better suited to monitor flow conditions in this section of the river.
Unfortunately (or, perhaps fortunately!), that gauge appears to have been very short-term, and is no longer reporting. It was part of a study for a proposed hydro project (which may have inundated or altered flows to part or all of this reach).
|Cuyahoga River at Old Portage OH|
|usgs-04206000||500 - 4000 cfs||I(II)||13h06m||265 cfs (too low)|
|Too low for any real whitewater experience.|
Gauge (404 sq.mi.drainage) is about 15 miles downstream, and a dam intervenes. Flows in this reach may therefore differ slightly from gauge.
Reports give the public a chance to report on river conditions throughout the country as well as log the history of a river.
