Just finished a week's worth of data collection for the "Powers that be"....

AVERAGE WATER DEPTH IN 3A.....135 CM !!!! THAT'S 4' 5.2" !!!!!
numerous places over 5' of water

AVERAGE DEPTH TO ROCK.... OVER 8' !!!!
numerous places nearly 9' to rock

F Y I

Don't expect the closure to be lifted any time soon at these water levels, you all.

This page shows a summary hydrograph
for 3A: rainfall, water depth, discharge.

there's also a table at the bottom that could be helpful

Regulatory stage in 3A is about a foot higher than it's long-term average, i.e. 25-yr, for late August
