Montana Crest-Stage Gage Network

Science Center Objects

The purpose of the crest-stage gage network is to inventory and monitor peak discharges throughout the state of Montana, with special emphasis on streams that may damage transportation infrastructure. Recorded data documenting peak streamflow at various sites within the state will be used by the Montana Department of Transportation to support assessments of culvert size, bridge construction, and road grade. Additionally, the crest-stage gage network will provide peak flow data that can be used to evaluate protocols for estimating flood frequency. Data for these sites are available from the USGS National Water Information System Web Mapper application in the form of an interactive map.
