    The spelling of “gage” is part of our very rich USGS history. In , USGS Director John Wesley Powell met a very forward-thinking graduate student named Frederick H. Newell. Powell was so impressed that he made Newell the first full-time appointee to the new Irrigation Survey, which was created to investigate the potential for dams and canals in the western U.S. Page 73 - The hook is of brass and has a sharp point, which, when raised to the surface of the water at rest, indicates its precise level. TO USE THE HOOK-GAUGE The hook-gauge is used in a box attached to a flume at any convenient point near the weir, the water from the flume being conveyed to the box by rubber or lead pipes, thus indicating the precise level of the water in the flume, the.

Stream gauging is the process of measuring the water discharge or flow at a particular point on a stream or river. There are many reasons why someone might take stream gauging measurements, such as implementing a long term study for ecological reasons, establishing a baseline to compare future data to, and studying trends for future growth, to name a few.

The series of manuals on techniques describes procedures for planning and executing specialized work in water-resources investigations. The material is grouped under major subject headings called books and further subdivided into sections and chapters; section A of book 3 is on surface-water techniques.

Setting up of measuring stations The measuring stations will consist of a runoff control where the measuring and sampling devices previously described will be installed. The performance of the measuring station is primarily limited by the behaviour of this control, that is the more permanent device and the more difficult to be modified or.

The essential components of a current-meter station are a water-level gage (stage recorder), a bench mark, fixed measuring points in the channel cross section, and a stay line to hold the meter in the measuring plane or cross section under high velocity and deep water.

Almost all of the equipment and instruments described in this report will meet the accuracy standard set by the USGS Office of Surface Water (OSW) for the measurement of stage for most applications, which is ± foot (ft) or.

Discharge measurements at gaging stations The techniques and standards for making discharge measurements at streamflow gaging stations are described in this publication. The vertical axis rotating-element current meter, principally the Price current meter, has been traditionally used for most measurements of discharge; however, advancements in.

Gaging stations are facilities used by hydrologists to automatically monitor streams, wells, lakes, canals, reservoirs, or other water bodies. Instruments at these stations collect information such as water height, discharge, water chemistry, and water temperature.

This current meter is suspended in the water using a cable with sounding weight or wading rod (taking the tail section off) and will accurately measure streamflow velocities from to .Stream Gaging is the common term for measuring the amount of water flowing in an open channel and can range from a trickle in a ditch to a flood on the Amazon River.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) makes most streamflow measurements by current meter. A current meter is an instrument used to measure the velocity of flowing water.
