Document Description
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation proposes to install a gauging station at the lower dock at Picacho SRA. River gauging stations are an integral part of reclamation's water scheduling, accounting and delivery operation, measuring elevations and flow velocity in rivers and main conveyances. They facilitate river operations and data collection essential to understanding current river conditions and maintaining current and accurate databases. The installation of this station will further provide Reclamation with additional operational data that will result in more efficient and effective delivery of Colorado River water to irrigation districts, municipalities, and Mexico.
