Josh although your request should have gone through the Run Submission Forum, I got er done.

Tieton Flows have been added. Gauge is based on the Canal headworks flow which takes into consideration the loss for irrigation diversion at the Bridge. Waffle Wall is above this but I think that it is more important to get the value after diversion than before.

Comments or preferences?

Its easy to get the flow before if thats what people use more.

I'm pretty sure the diversion is at the dam, which is above High Noon, the Bridge Wave, and Waffle Wall.

The guidebook goes by the outflow from the dam up at rimrock, so some feedback this year on how the bridge wave behaves at different levels below the diversion dam might be helpful for creating a better flow range. As far as I know the damkeepers won't release more than 3k cfs, so there really isn't a top range, although things get fast and pushy at the high range of flows.

I am sick of what the guidebooks say. Things change. Lets just go with what should be from now on... Not what was.

Good example is the Tumwater stretch. Why are we still using the Peshastin Gauge for this. What do you say we get accurate and start using the Plain gauge instead!

This would be like if they put a gauge at the bottom of Split Rock. Would we still use the Goldbar gauge despite the improved accuracy and availability?

Now that we have more gauges lets use them not limit ourselves to what things were in the past. We can write up notes on the description pages with these changes so people understand why etc...

That's what I was getting at.  We should use the more relevant gauge, but we also need to develop a flow range that fits that gauge.

I like the mil gauge, with the graph, it tells you exactly how much water is being released from the dam. Plus it's the gauge I've used for 17 years and am used to the water level predictions from this source.
