Nelsonville installing Hocking River level staff gage on SR 278 bridge, Wed, 7/28/21, 9AM to 1PM, use caution in area

The City of Nelsonville in cooperation with the National Weather Service Office in Charleston, West Virginia will be installing a Hocking River level staff gage on the Lake Hope Drive, (SR 278) bridge. The staff gage installation will take place on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 between the hours of 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Crews will be working in the Hocking River under the bridge and on the bridge deck during this time. Motorists are asked to use caution in the area during this time and watch for workers on and around the bridge.

The river staff gage is being installed to help officials better monitor river levels. The gage will help to get a better idea of what levels will cause impacts to the Nelsonville area once, it is correlated to the Athens gage downstream.

What is a staff gage? Staff gages look like oversized rulers, that are permanently installed in a body of water. They provide a quick visual reference of the water level. Their simplicity and effectiveness mean they are quite useful in monitor changing water levels.
