GAGE - In Aug. 2015, datum of gage was converted to North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988. Datum of gage 1,431.20, NAVD of 1988. Datum of gage was 1,430 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD) of 1929, from topographic map. {The description (prior to S.M. Robinson update on 9/18/12) indicated the datum was derived as "determined from USC & GS BM D351 1935" (elevation 1,460.588) Lat. 46*36'10.50", Long. 100*23'9.28". There is no indication or evidence that the datum was ever leveled into a BM; if so, the records were lost.}.
