Boulder Creek Gauge

Gauge geeks:

Whats up with the Boulder Creek gauge. Is it reading low?

Looking at the BOULDER CREEK NEAR ORODELL gauge:

Detail Graph

there is that little red cross thing. That's where somebody actually comes out and estimates the flow right? So the gauge was reading about 80 cfs but the dude estimated that it was actually 120. Now the gauge is at about 140 so the actual flow is...?

Is it worth running right now?

I think the number on the gauge is what it actually is now. There wasn't a correlating bump on the downstream gauge at 75th street, so I assume that the bump on the Orodell gauge was the result of re-calibrating after the manual reading.

I'm going to run up the creek in a bit so I will report back on how it looks. Either way, I think I will at least lap the park a few times this evening.
