That was my suggestion. More automated readings.


Thank You,

I was confused as the USGS water data is readily available and accessible. I use it all the time in the summer to see which rivers are flowing best for float trips in missouri. 


That said, there are many places where there could be more sensors; lots of rivers and streams aren't monitored via satellite, and instead by eye as needed during floods.

Actually I believe the stream gauges use Meteor Scatter, but I can't 
find a reference right now...
