Data recorded by stream gages inform important decisions and stream conditions. The Sun River Watershed Group and partners use these data to determine where to invest time and money in water conservation, habitat restoration, and water use efficiency. Gage data are invaluable for measuring changes to streamflow to determine if improvement projects or management changes are effective.
Operating and maintaining gages in the Sun River watershed can be costly. However, data provided by gages is critical for informing water managers and users. You can help support SRWG’s stream gages.
The Sun River Watershed Group has improved streamflows by lining ditches or converting them to pipe and by working with water managers and agencies to improve communication. Check back here for more project information coming soon.
This interactive map can be used to view gages, points of diversion, and other features within the Sun River Watershed.
The Sun River Water Management Working Group meets twice per year.
Many reports have been compiled to assess and plan water management in the Sun River watershed.
