River Levels in One Day

Heavy rain not only got the culvert running. It raised the water level of the river quite a bit. I was able to watch the river change hourly.

Since we are only about 15 miles from the beginning of the river, the water levels can change quickly during heavy rainfall, or quick thawing of snow pack. Likewise, once the rain stops, the levels can drop quickly returning the river to average flow.
