Water surface elevations recorded by submerged water level loggers in off-channel features of the middle and upper Willamette River, Oregon, Summer, 2016

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Water surface elevations within seven Willamette River off-channel features (OCF; alcoves and side channels) were measured using submerged pressure transducers. Transducers were installed from late May through mid-October, 2016, when discharge of the Willamette River was between approximately 5,500 and 45,000 cubic feet per second at Salem, Oregon (USGS gage 14191000) and 3,500 to 17,500 cubic feet per second at Harrisburg, Oregon (USGS gage 14166000). Pressure transducer sensor depth was measured at all seven sites. For five of the sites, pressure transducer sensor depths were converted to water surface elevations by surveying the water surface at each transducer with a real-time kinematic global positioning system (RTK-GPS). Additionally, three barometric sensors were installed for barometric compensation of the water levels. These pressure transducer data sets were collected to characterize relationships between Willamette River discharges and water surface elevations in off-channel features. The USGS reserves the right to place these data into the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) database at some point in the future, at which point the NWIS copy of the data would become the definitive copy.
