About this location:  This site is located on the south side of 128tha Ave Bridge in LiIttlerock, Washington.  IT has been active (intermittently) since 1989.  The site is located approximately 300 feet south of the confluence with Waddell Creek making this location a combined flow mixing zone.  Substantial flows occur at this location in winter and these flows are strongly influenced by the input from Waddell Creek.

Data is available from Thurston County.  Flow measurements are taken every 15 minutes.  They are correlated to stage height.  Manual measurements are taken every month on average.  These measurements are taken using a double beam sonic doppler wading system by staff.  This website will be developed substantially in the coming months to provide all the data Thurston County has available for this location.  These data will be posted when QA/QC vetting has been completed by the end of 2011.  It is currently not available to the public.

Black River at 110th Ave SW

About this location:  The bridge at 110th Ave SW (approximately 10 miles north of Littlerock) is located in a broad wetland appendage south of Black Lake.  The flow of Black River at this location is nearly non detectable therefor the data presented is in Feet of Stage recorded every 15- minutes rather than traditional flow or cubic feet per second (ft/sec-1) data typical of stream measurements .  The level of the river varies widely and 110th Ave SW is routinely flooded by the increase in elevation of the Black River.
