Online Gauge Information
There is a new online gauge for Amicolola. We are still gathering data for this gauge. Post levels in the comments section below.
Should the online gauge go down, gauge levels can be extrapolated using the following guidelines.
In late winter and spring with good west to east weather patterns, use the formula; (Etowah-Dawsonville gauge) + (Etowah-Canton gauge) X 0.08= Amicalola Guage.
This formula is reasonably accurate up to 1.8 and one to three days of moderate rain. At levels over 1.8 and after heavy prolonged rain, the formula should be used to gauge the minimum river level only. Actual levels could be 0.6-1.1 feet higher.
During late spring and summer when spotty rain patterns develop, the Canton gauge should be disregarded. When the
Etowah-Dawsonville gauge reaches 6.0 or more and there has been rain within the last 24 hours, then the Amicalola should be at 0.85 or more.
This information has been developed using a limited amount of data points. To further develop this formula, and to better correlate the online and bridge gauges at higher water, please report your runs to Amicalola Report
Please include the date, time, gauge reading, and any local rain activity.
