Charlotte-Mecklenburg Stream Data Network

PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

surface water site Streamgage site

surface water site with webcam Streamgage site with webcam

There are 53 streamgage sites collecting 5-minute continuous gage height data in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Network. Of these 53 sites, 44 compute streamflow data as well.

Most sites use line-of-site radios to transmit the data to the USGS within minutes after the data is recorded. These data are loaded in the USGS database and available online soon after.

There are 18 outlier sites that use satellite telemetry instead of radio to transmit the data to the USGS. These data are transmitted hourly and more frequently when certain stage thresholds are met.

The majority of the sites are equipped with an ALERT(Automated Local Evaluation in Real-Time) transmitter for sending real-time gage height values as part of the FINS network. In addition, there are 5 sites with Web cameras for monitoring stream levels.
