Abstract

This manual establishes the surveying procedures for setting gages at a streamflow gaging station to datum and for checking them periodically for errors caused by vertical movement of the gage-supporting structures. The surveying terms and concepts used are explained; and the details of testing, adjusting, and operating the instruments are outlined. Notekeeping, adjusting level circuits, checking gages, summarizing results, locating the nearest National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 bench mark, and relating the gage datum to the national datum are described.
