It's in northeast Oregon, right across the border.  Basically it's the Tri-Cities equivalent to the powerhouse, only more difficult and less water.

You'll have to talk to the spokompton boaters on here.  I'd keep the spokane over the Umi, though.  And I'm not talking about the class 2 section in Pendleton, I'm talking about the 3 mile dam section.  I'm just trying to be lazy and and get a one click check.  She's up to ELFing flows now.

How about just clicking on the "rivers" tab at the top of the page and looking at all of them at once?  You know what you want to see, make one click and find it, maybe you'll find something running that you hadn't considered.....

MORE RAIN PLEASE

James, o great one, can you please put the Sultan back up next to the Sky(since they both run together all winter), thanks man!

And to answer the others guys statements, it' nice to have rivers on the home page, especially when you surfing with a mobile device, like a ppc. I use a ppc allot, even while I'm driving, and it is a quick reference to the rivers that are flowing without having to load multiple pages wich takes allot of time. I'm on my ppc right now as a matter of fact.

THought about it and decided not to... WHy? Because then monkeys would be refreshing their favorite rivers to bump them to the top and we would loose the ones we really want to see.

Mosh Pit has a guage, too. 5k a minimum? - https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/wrx/wrx/flows/station.asp?wria=20

pilchuck creek - 600 is low. 3000 is high for the middle section with the waterfall. The upper needs more water to go - 1300 minimum.

Christian,

The gauges on that scitech.pyr.ec.gc.ca site are guarded by a webform that greatly complicates the code I have running in my windows service.

If you have an idea or example of anyone using this data I would love to see it. To my understanding there is not even another site that streams the elaho and cheak other than bchydro so I doubt there is anyone doing the hard ones you listed above.... Please Please tell me if there is.

Sorry James, I know nothing of the technically issues - but now that you explain, I do notice that I've not seen any other sites with it as you say... probably some gov't thing... shame really.

Ernies added.


Also FYI Christian, I have been bouncing emails off a few folks that work for water survey of canada in the pacific and yukon region. I am working on developing a relationship as a public service member so we can access all of the different gauge values they have in BC and use the data here, there is a ton of rivers and drainages covered.

I will keep you updated on this because it would be so sweet to have the streaming values of stuff like Cayoosh, Birkenhead, Soo, Thompson, Ashlu (new gauge), Chillwack, Even big silver!!!! Make trip planning a whole lot more accurate.

Uh the Ministry of Environment was less than helpful and basically told me that because they don't warrant the value of the data, they also don't make it readily available.

I explained just how easy it would be, to make it available through web services and the such and they were pretty against it. The best offer I had was to receive an email once each morning to an address, which would have a pdf file attached containing the flow data.

Another virtually useless method for data parsing...

I gave up trying to think of methods and realized they are working to find methods that prevent what I am doing on purpose!
