Lees Ferry - 100 Years of Streamflow Monitoring

On October 1, 2021, the U.S. Geological Survey Colorado River streamflow gaging site (USGS 09380000) at Lees Ferry will mark its 100-year anniversary of recording continuous streamflow data. As the gage of record for the apportionment of the Colorado River between the Upper and Lower Colorado River basins, the Lees Ferry site is arguably one of the most important

Colorado River: Spring Disturbance Flow

For five days in March of 2021, the Glen Canyon Dam released a historically low flow of 4,000 cubic feet per second into the Colorado River. The USGS took this opportunity to collect data in an attempt to verify the measurements being reported by the Lee’s Ferry gaging station, which showed a discrepancy between the amount of water being released at the dam and the water

A USGS guide for finding and interpreting high-water marks (AD)

High-water marks provide valuable data for understanding recent and historical flood events. The proper collection and recording of high-water mark data from perishable and preserved evidence informs flood assessments, research, and water resource management. This video provides guidance for skilled high-water mark identification, including marks left behind in natural and
