This site uses multiple sensors, and possibly sensor types, to measure gage height. The final usable published data series is presented as the Primary Sensor. The Secondary and Tertiary Sensors are used to fill in for the Primary Sensor when the Primary Sensor is either damaged or less accurate.

This site experiences a variable backwater condition from it's proximity to the Brazos River. Discharge is computed using an index-velocity rating beginning November 17th, 2020 and will be used to compute discharge greater than 500 cfs. Discharge less than 500 cfs is not computed due to equipment limitations related with less than 1.5 ft/s velocities. Periods of erratic or intermittent discharge typically indicates low velocity and a backwater condition when the gage height hydrograph is complete.
