|Publication Date:||18 July 2013|
|ICS Code (Flow in open channels):||17.120.20|
This International Standard gives requirements for the establishment and operation of a gauging station for the measurement of stage, or stage and discharge, of a lake, reservoir, river or canal or other artificial open channel. It also describes how a gauging station utilizing one of the measurement methods listed should be operated and maintained.
Requirements are provided for stage only measurement stations, stage-discharge stations and directdischarge measurement stations in natural channels, as well as for stage-discharge stations with artificial structures. Additionally, some requirements are given for measurements under difficult conditions, such as under ice conditions.
