Checking water depth in stormwater drains, Hampton Roads

Detailed Description

Quality assurance is an important aspect of data collection. This means periodically checking the stage measurements for accuracy and making streamflow measurements manually at stormwater monitoring sites across Hampton Roads to compare to those computed from streamflow models. Here, USGS researcher Chelsea Vande Pol verifies water level measurements during a site visit. This site is part of the Hampton Roads Regional Water Quality Monitoring Program.
