  The Canal Company has installed two gauge stations.  One is located at the platform, so the gauge at the dam will be read every 15 minutes automatically on a graph and the other  is located at the bridge crossing, before the tunnel, when water is being delivered.   The Gauge Reading website: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/id/nwis/uv?cb_00065=on&cb_70969=on&format=gif_default&period=1&begin_date=2014-03-19&end_date=2014-03-26&site_no=13106500
