USGS Ark at Nathrop is Broken

It has been noted on the other Ark thread but the USGS at Nathrop is broken (thought this deserved its own thread). The drop in flow (1.5' or 2k cfs) is not real. Use the Colorado Division of Water Resources Salida gage or USGS at Granite to estimate flows for Browns canyon.

Arkansas river flows

The gauge at Nathrop is not working properly, the lastest flow I heard from local Salida Fire is that the river is running 5300cfs in Salida. Please stay safe as it may continue to rise and sudden strainers and bridge passes are sketch all along the Ark.

Now is it fixed? Or are they estimating it?

Looks like the Brown's (Nathrop) gage is back up and running. It's "Provisional Data" but all the real time data is "Provisional."
