    • Title: Manual Water Depth measurements
    • Start Date: 2019-05-13
    • Description: Measurements manually measured at both the north and south deployment sites to use as a reference for the water depth loggers. These measurements are recorded during each site visit.

    • Purpose: Manually measure the water depth at both logger deployment sites to use as a comparison to the depth measured by the water depth loggers.
