USGS Takes Streamflow Measurements

Detailed Description

USGS crews aboard the Butta Bean measure streamflow on the Mississippi River during the 2011 Flood. At the height of the flood, USGS crews are out every other day taking streamflow measurements to ensure the US Army Corps of Engineers has accurate, up-to-date information with which to base its river management decisions.
