Faith: We're at the US Geological
Survey stream gauge at Underwood Creek.
Tom: This gauge was very useful and
helpful in terms of the overall stream
restoration design in designing the low
flow channel as well as a flood flow
channel on this site. Do you want to
take a look inside?
Faith: Let's take a look. From this
gauge house that we can take stage and
flow and also collect water quality
samples, this needs to be done
continuously over the course of an
entire year and in the morning, night,
and also on weekends. So it saves us
from having a technician out here all the time.
Tom: From a planning perspective, these
gauges are just critical for us to be
able to help people understand flood
flows and as well as do the modeling
for flood mitigation, and as well as
understanding the variability of flows
on sites and throughout our cities and urban areas.
