It is read twice each day by.Joshua R. Bennett. Discharge measurements are made b3' means of a cable and car about 200 feet below the gage. The initial point for soundings is the zero of the tagged wire. The channel is straight for 200 feet above and below the cable and the current is swift. The right bank is low, and is liable to overflow beyond the cable support at very high water. The left bank is high and will not overflow. The bed of the stream is composed of sand and gravel and is permanent. There is but one channel at all stages. The bench mark consists of three nails driven into the root of a cottonwood tree 18 feet north of the gage. Its elevation is 12.07 feet above the zero of the gage. The gage was disturbed by a flood in early February, 1904. and settled 0.81 feet. The elevation of the bench mark is 12.38 feet above the zero of the present gage. The observations at this station during 1904 have been made under the direction of A. E. Chandler, district hydrographer. Discharge measurements of Trurkee. River near Wadsirorth, Ne.v., in 190-.
