Methods: 

Discharge was measured using the velocity area method with a SonTek or Marsh-McBirney flow meter. Discharge was measured six times throughout the summer season. Flow was measured at 20 points along a transect. A Campbell Scientific CR-10 data logger recorded stage height every 4 hours. The observed stage height is used with the measured discharge to develop a rating curve determined by the USGS. The rating curve is used to calculate discharge from the recorded stage height values.
