Title: Measuring Streamflow Through a Weir

Description: Pew Creek below Johnson Road, Lawrenceville, Ga. The metal structure is a "V" weir. A sediment dam was built on either side of it to force the water through the weir. Scientists can calculate gallons per minute flow in the stream by timing how long the flow took to fill a bucket.
