Sugar Creek Gage Information
Per earlier posts, the Crawfordsville USGS gage (3339500) is now dead, as it was just upstream of a dam that has been removed.
Fortunately, there is another gage on Sugar Creek 16.9 miles upstream - the Thornton gage (USGS 3339305) - which was installed not quite 2 years ago.
Comparing historical data yields an equation that can be used to predict an approximate Crawfordsville gage reading from the Thornton gage reading.
Crawfordsville cfs = (Thornton cfs x 1.63) + 14
this provides a good approximation for anyone who used the Crawfordsville gage for paddling decisions.
For Reference Old Gauge levels
2 ft (normal river level) = about 401 cfs
3 ft (rental cutoff ) = about 1,470 cfs
3.5 ft = about 2,290 cfs
