River Gauge Conversions
Cheat River Conversion (from Richard Hopley)
For the Albright Bridge, these days, the most up-to-the-minute value available online is the Albright Power Station gauge (APS). To get Albright Bridge (AB) I multiply that by 1.6 and add 0.3'. Then I check upstream at Rowlesburg to see if it is going to be rising or falling.
AB ~= ( APS x 1.6 ) + 0.3
Meadow River Conversions (from Richard Hopley)
The taped telephone message from the Huntington Corps of Engineers gives Meadow River levels in feet. All guidebooks, boaters, and lists that I know of give recommendations for runnability in CFS. Here is a correlation table I developed from hundreds of days of following the online guages. For each 1/10th of a foot I have at least two volume readings (I maintained the highest and lowest volume I found for each 1/10th increment) and I give the average here.
'Course, in this day of the USGS online gauges you may not feel the need for this, but I take it with me when I am in central WV without my computer, so I can phone for the level and then look up the volume.
