Topic: Slab Creek gauge is stuck, computing flow from res. elevation
|Posted: Jan 9, 2017Post Subject: Slab Creek gauge is stuck, computing flow from res. elevation
|The physical gauge below Slab Creek Dam is stuck, so Dreamflows is temporarily computing flow based on Slab Creek reservoir elevation.|
While not as accurate as the physical gauge, the computation should nevertheless be quite good.

SMUD is still saying the sensor is damaged, however CDEC seems to have new data for outflow versus back in January.
Plus they appear to have added a Spill sensor (or I never noticed it before).
What are your thoughts or knowledge?
1. Is the outflow gauge fixed or just stuck at a new level?
2. Is the CDEC reported Spill data really a new sensor or just a calculation based on elevation?

|The Slam Creek Gauge below the Dam has washed out twice - SMUD does not expect to get a new one in until the run off is done and they can safely get personal back in to replace it. Chris' calculation for Slab is the best bet.
