Twenty one submersible pressure transducers were deployed along the Green River near Jensen Utah in late February 2018. At some locations two transducers were deployed at different elevations to capture the expected range of water level fluctuations, an "upper" and "lower" transducer. Two additional transducers were left out of the water to correct for barometric pressure fluctuations. At the time of deployment, the position of a reference point located on a t-post to which each transducer was mounted was measured with real-time kinematic GPS equipment. In addition, a tape down or the distance between the reference point to the water surface was recorded.The transducers collected a depth measurement every 15 minutes until their recovery in September. Seventeen of the twenty one transducers were recovered. We adjusted the water-surface elevation measured at deployment by the difference between the depth measured at deployment and each subsequent depth measurement at the recovered transducers to compute the water-surface elevation at 15-minute intervals.
