Snowy streamgage 15275100 here, on the Chester Creek in Alaska! I'm cooperatively funded by the @usgs Alaska Science Center and the @alaska_dotpf as part of the Small Streams Program. The intent is to collect streamflow information in small basins to aid in design of culverts and bridges. In addition, I help @nws forecast floods accurately. Data collection started in 1966, but there have been a few gaps in my record. While it is cold now, Chester Creek is a popular greenbelt trail through the center of town and the Iditarod teams pass just upstream of me every March during the ceremonial start.
