Gauge wish list
Some canyons with flowing water have gauges installed and managed by agencies/utilities. Some of these gauges are connected live to the internet and some aren't. This page serves to keep a wish list of gauges for creeks you'd like to see gauged or gauges needing live connection.
One place to see which gauges exist in the US is USGS Real-Time Stream Gauges or download the KML file for the US.
Feel free to add any relevant notes or just list creeks you'd like gauged so you can travel to a canyon better prepared for conditions.
