The Nevada Water Science Center is transitioning to a new data management software package starting the week of June 19, 2017. While you may not notice this transition, some sites may have problems or delays in being updated. We are actively monitoring these conditions and are resolving them as quickly as possible. See the Dec 8 news entry for more information at: https://help.waterdata.usgs.gov/news
This site is part of a Flood Warning Network located along Hardscrabble Creek near Sutcliffe, NV, and lies within Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal lands located about thirty five miles northeast of Reno. This network of 7 stations measures water level (stage) and rainfall, and lies in a drainage basin severely burned by the Tule Fire of 2016, which covered about 36,150 acres. Two stage gaging stations collect and display the water level of Hardscrabble Creek and five precipitation gages collect and display rainfall data within the basin. Data are collected every five minutes and are transmitted by satellite telemetry for display on this web page on an hourly basis except during intense rainfall or rapidly rising water flow conditions, at which times the data are transmitted and displayed every five minutes. Questions regarding these sites should be directed to NV Water Science Center Networks Chief, Steven Berris: (775) 887-7693.
