Flow Measurements Resume On Clavey

Sonora, CA — A stream flow measurement gauge has been reinstalled on the free flowing Clavey River.

It is a partnership between the Stanislaus National Forest and City and County of San Francisco. The new device replaces the original historic guage that was once operated by the United States Geological Society until its termination in 1995. At the time, budgetary constraints required the dicontinuation of several stream flow measurement operations.

The Forest Service says a key benefit of the new Clavey gauge is that it adds to the history and understanding of natural flows in the Sierra and provides real-time data for anyone interested in flow information, such as anglers and kayakers.
