This station will likely be discontinued October 1, 2014 due to lack of funding.
This is the message that now appears on the USGS Leonards Gage site: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?05331833
We are making some progress, as the Leonards Gage will be operational for another year, but only if we can come up with $2,500 in funding within a “reasonable” period of time. Thank you USGS for your willingness to work with us.
This is the only automated river gage on the upper Namekagon River. This 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 through September 30, 2014, NRP has pledged to raise $2,500 of the $11,500 annual operating cost.
