Rapid Deployment to Mobile Streamgages
The USGS has developed new rapidly deployable, mobile streamgages to provide short-term water-level data to critical areas lacking streamgages.
The USGS network of 7,400 streamgaging stations covers many of the Nations streams - but not all. The lack of a gage can be critical during a storm or when an emergency condition requires more detailed monitoring. Therefore, USGS has developed new rapidly deployable, mobile streamgages to provide short-term water-level data to those areas. These mobile gages can also serve as emergency replacements for damaged or destroyed gages, especially when more detailed hydrologic information is needed like in the days before or after Hurricane Katrina.
Communities in need of additional monitoring please contact Gregg Wiche or Steve Robinson at the North Dakota Water Science Center (WSC)
