This station will likely be discontinued October 1, 2013 due to lack of funding.
This is the message that appears on the USGS Leonards Gage site:
We need your help!
The only river gage on the upper Namekagon River is in danger of shutting down. This automated gage on Leonard School Road bridge provides vital data retention and real-time telemetry used by many: fishermen, paddlers, researchers, etc. Note: gage = gauge. By tradition, hydrologists use this spelling for devices that measure stream flow and temperature…..so we will honor their spelling preference.
To keep this gage in operation for the 12-month period starting on October 1, 2013, NRP has pledged to raise $2,500 of the anticipated $11,500 annual operating cost.
