Stream Gaging and Sediment Transport
Balance Hydrologics manages and maintains numerous stream gaging stations and rain gauges in the San Francisco Bay Area, using standard USGS protocols. These site-specific primary data sets form the basis for more complex evaluations and analysis. At many stations Balance staff measure bedload- and suspended-sediment discharge, which adds to the understanding of the sediment process at work in the watershed. Balance performs both high-flow storm visits and periodic low-flow site visits to perform observations and measurements that are used to calibrate the automatically collected data.
The majority of the stations are telemetered for real-time information.
