Default Wilmington Water Gage

The water gages near Wiliminton have been down for a couple of weeks now, so I emailed the USGS to see what's going on. They got back to me saying that they received some new, replacement equipment and the site should be back up by Wednesday evening.

Default Water

Thx for the update,

I've been avoiding the river with the recent rains and didn't notice that the chart had stopped back on May 27th or so.

Duh!!

I depend on the data when I'm deciding whether to fish the river or hit the creeks

My personal target is 3000 CFS or below

Anything above that seems to be too much work and probably isn't safe anyways

Let us know when you hear that it's up and working again

I wonder if with the new equipment will the readings be different i.e. different benchmark?

Thx

Wilmginton site is back up and running. Flow rate is 3220 and falling. Of course, because there is more rain moving in.
