USGS Real-Time Stream Levels in Winston County

The U. S. Geological Survey has real-time water data for many streams in Alabama.  Links to the two stations in Winston County have been added to the links section on this blog.  One station is located near on the Sipsey Fork near the Sipsey Picnic Area, and the other is located on Clear Creek near Poplar Springs.  As I write this, heavy rain is causing the Sipsey Fork stream gage to report rising water levels.  When you click on the links for the real-time stream data, there are two main sections, the discharge flow and the gage height.  The webpage provides a graph for the past seven days, but this can be changed to any time frame from 1 to 60 days, if you desire.
