Gage - Campbell Scientific CS476 Radar connected to a SatLink 2 Data Collection Platform (DCP) in a NEMA4 enclosure. A wire weight gage located on the bridge is the primary reference for the gage. A supplemental staff gage is located on the bridge pier closest to the shelter. The staff reads 1.17 ft lower than the wire weight, which occasionally leads to confusion.
