Kautz Creek at Kautz Helibase
View forecast for this location

Station and Location Information:
► Latitude: 46.729543° North (WGS1984)
► Longitude: -121.856375° West (WGS1984)
► UTM Northing: 5176395 meters (NAD 1983 Zone 10N)
► UTM Easting: 587656 meters (NAD 1983 Zone 10N)
► Elevation: 2405 feet (733.044 meters)
► Recording Interval: 15 minutes

Station Notes:
► All in-water equipment at this site is down, including Water Pressure, Water Temperature, Water Conductivity, Turbidity, and Stage. This is due to a battery and charging issue at the remote site. Additionally, the side channel that the site measures is currently dry and a replacement site will need to be identified. The in-water equipment will likely be down until Mid Summer 2023. This message will be removed when the site is back running normally.
► The visibility and present weather sensor is currently disabled so the site does not use too much power during the winter time. The sensor will be re-enabled Spring 2023.
► The rain gage is unheated and will not accurately record in periods of ice or snow fall.
► This site records river stage only (not discharge).
► This station may experience problems during and after storm events due to extreme sediment load. Please use the gage height and discharge data with caution during these periods.
