GAGE - Water-stage recorder in a structure that channelizes creek into 3 ft wide flume leading to a V-notch weir located at its downstream end. The V-notch weir is the control at all stages, with the exception of very high flow, which may not be contained by the gage structure.  Discharge was classified as a high-precision weir beginning in October 2015 in order to compute daily discharge values to the thousandth of a cubic feet per second.  Elevation of gage is 5200 feet above NGVD of 1929, from topographic map. Gage height of zero is at the elevation of the bottom of the notch (zero flow). 
REMARKS - No regulation or diversion.
