|Data availability||07/12/2007 - 31/01/2010 (data unreliable between 12/06/08 - 01/07/08 due to livestock disturbance; instrument failure 17/10/09 - 09/12/09)|
|Location||At end of minor grip feature (~100m in length) which was blocked Feb 2009 (after which measurements give depth of ponded water)|

|Related sites||Upstream site, none; downstream site, CRO_sc5; other sites in Croasdale subcatchment, CRO_sc1, CRO_sc2, CRO_sc4, CRO_mid, CRO_out and Croasdale (EA gauge)|
Data DownloadCross section survey data, stage/discharge data (including manual measurements of stage) and time series of levels (not corrected for atmospheric pressure) may be downloaded here (990kb). (For details on using the data click here.)
Land Use / Management ChangesThe grip system has been blocked. Low stocking levels are being maintained for habitat regeneration.

Channel DescriptionThe channel cross-section at the instrument location is provided below. Datum is taken as the top of the diver access tube (red bar). Width is measured from the left-hand side bank when looking downstream, with locations to left of the diver tube taken as negative and those to the right positive.
Details from an MSc student project are available here. (Note, the information above takes precedence over the student report.)
Time Series Data
The recorded levels (not corrected for atmospheric pressure) and temperature are shown below, separated out by month.
