Tide Gauges Installed on Novato Creek

Post Date:12/21/2018 2:01 PM

The Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District recently installed two tide gauges on Novato Creek to improve around-the-clock tidal elevation monitoring. One is at the Rowland Way Bridge and the other is where Novato Creek meets San Pablo Bay.

“These two tide gauges will help us better understand the importance and impacts of tides on flooding in the City of Novato and the baylands in our computer models,” said Roger Leventhal, Marin County Flood Control District’s Senior Civil Engineer. “This will be a great resource for the District, helping us plan for sea level rise adaptation and the potential flooding associated with it.”

The data for all 28 county gauges is available to the public in real-time through the District’s OneRain website.
