Water-stage recorder and concrete control.  Satellite telemetry at station. 

Datum of gage:  559.45 ft NAVD88 based on a Level 2 Static GNSS survey processed through OPUS, Ref Frame NAD83 (2011)(EPOCH:2010.0000) ITRF2014 (EPOCH:2022.8377) and Geoid 18.  The survey was completed on November 2nd, 2022, while occupying a TRM referenced to local datum via differential levels.
