Lobs Hole gauge changed due to flood

It seems like the big water last month has changed the lobs hole gauge, presumably by moving some sand or debris about in the pool where the gauge is located. I paddled Red Rocks on Saturday with the lobs gauge reading about 2.5m, but the actual level seemed more like 2.1 – 2.2ish. Have a look at the graph comparing the last months water levels to see what I mean.

I’d be guessing that 2.4 at lobs is a scrapey minimum level for Red Rocks trips, corresponding to about 2.0m before the change to the gauge.

Edit: Looks like they have now fixed the gauge (16/8/07).
