Guess what folks....

We got new gauges online ...

The Cooper River and Cle Elum are both on the live update gauge feed.

Come and get it... those will be added to the spring list for sure!

James,

Do you actually work with the USGS to get new gauges up, or do they do it and you find out and put them on the site?  Bravo, well done with the Cooper!

The cooper and the cle elum are the same gauge first and it is not technically a gauge.

In this case the Cle Elum Resevoir has always made a .txt file available for download to the public. The file however had to be downloaded and it was updated daily at 8am.

The issue was that the values on this report although competely accurate were very difficult to parse for data. So because of the format and layout it was difficult to add to an XML parser or any such method.

Over last weekend I wrote an app that runs on the server here that grabs that document every few hours opens it and saves the levels to our database. So bing we have an updated gauge. The date it is updated is on the homepage and river page.

This gauge is not anywhere else on the internet except for the Yakima yakstats page on the resivoir server.

More coming soon... I did some BC gauges the same freakin way and I am stoked to say the least.   

The way this new system works is like this...

You want a river listed in our system... Just name the country, river name, run name. It will go in. Then you can edit the details.

If you want a gauge added to a river in our list.... Just find a place on the web that has the value and is open usage and post the link here. I will write an app to get the data and it will be added.

Gauge updates for 9/1/2009
  • The USBR gauges have been fixed, pay attention to the dates because they tweak stuff around much more than the USGS.  (Cle Elum, Cooper, Tieton etc..)

  • Cheakamus & Elaho have been fixed pay attention to the dates here also

  • N.F. Payette has been added (USBR for the outflow from cascade res)

  • The Skook Flows have been fixed also to show the upcoming flows on the calendar using skookview and on the skook page.
