Detailed Description

Hydrologic technicians Sarah Davis and Jackie Eldredge preparing for a discharge measurement of the Moreau River near Faith, SD (streamgage 06359500). During high flows, the USGS uses a tractor to assist in the discharge measurement where other technology like acoustics will not work due to the high sediment within the stream and where a heavy weight is needed to keep the flow meter vertical in the water column. The orange cones on the roadway ensure safety of staff.
