Gauge Description:

Mostly visual, minimum flows are around 50 cfs. It can be run as high as you can catch it. The run significantly changes in the higher flows, i.e. if it is close to or over its banks above the GW Parkway.

The gauge is for a nearby stream to give a rough idea if this one is running or not.
