Salt gauge broken?

I heard rumours that the Salt gauge broke with the 30K flush earlier this season -- and that as a result it is reporting incorrect flows. I've been checking it every few days, hoping that water will still be good for second week of May...

Any ideas whether the rumour is true? Looks like it's still cold down there, so I'm hoping the water will last...

After the higher flows in February, gauge was stuck at 2000 cfs. The USGS went out and fixed around the middle of march, but the concensus is that it's about 500 cfs too low. Both Don Sumners, the river ranger, and other salt veterans have "felt this." Since then, the new rating shifts keep bumping the flows coresponding to the hieghts down a bit. The simulated flow on the cbrfc site isn't effected by this shift (in fact you can see where the new shift drops the rated flow below the simulated line on the hydrograph.) You can see this here:

or here and click on the 'simulated' data:
