ICS Code (Water of natural resources): 13.060.10
significance And Use:

These test methods are used to determine the gauge height or elevation of a river or other body of water above a given datum.

Water level data can serve as an easily recorded parameter, and... View More

scope:

1.1 These test methods cover equipment and procedures used in obtaining water levels of rivers, lakes, and reservoirs or other water bodies. Three types of equipment are available as follows:

Test Method A-Nonrecording water-level measurement devices
Test Method B-Recording water-level measurement devices
Test Method C-Remote-interrogation water-level measurement devices

1.2 The procedures detailed in these test methods are widely used by those responsible for investigations of streams, lakes, reservoirs, and estuaries, for example, the U.S. Agricultural Research Service, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, and the U.S. Geological Survey. The referenced ISO standard also furnishes useful information.

1.3 It is the responsibility of the user of these test methods to determine the acceptability of a specific device or procedure to meet operational requirements. Compatibility between sensors, recorders, retrieval equipment, and operational systems is necessary, and data requirements and environmental operating conditions must be considered in equipment selection.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
