NSV Below Butonrock Gauge back on line!

NSV Paddlers, I just got a call from my Longmont water contact that the NSV Below Buttonrock Gauge is working again.

Detail Graph

Now we just need some warm weather to get it going!

Aww, all that mess of estimation data I added to Riverbrain is instantly rendered useless.

I updated the River Brain gauges for all the lower NSV runs. Deploying my extensive mathematics background, I was able to develop a sophisticated flow formula for calculating SSV flows. which should give a reasonably accurate cfs measurement for the run. This has also been updated on River Brain.

So, all the mystery has now been taken out of the St. Vrain runs. My only problem is my brain has now been calibrated to SSV foot gauge measurements instead of cfs measurements.

I'll bet all these runs start to come in this weekend with the warm weather.

So, the Riverbrain cfs number is accurate now? How do the maths work for that, anyway?

SSV flow = st vrain at lynons - nsv below buttonrock.

Next project for river brain... build a chart of lyons stick gauge vs. calculated cfs to recalibrate yourself to the flows.

I bet Booth has the cfs dialed? My guess would be something like 120 min, 150 - 250 good, 300+ swim at your own risk no lifegaurd on duty.

Slow down there Einstein. Does '-' mean take away?

Right, the cfs reading on the SSV run on River Brain should be pretty damn accurate now. It obviously doesn't account for the slight time difference between the NSV and Lyons gauge readings, but close enough.

CFS is listed in WWoSR and I assume it was linked to the SSV at Lyons minus the NSV below buttonrock. If I remember the minimum is listed as 175cfs or so...I would be curious if that correlates to 4" on the gauge.

Kevin, could you quit your job already and dedicate all of your time to gauge geeking and River Brain editing?

Best bet is to keep the job and do all your riverbraining at work, so that you can free up your spare time to kayak.
