Real-time and archival stage record for the Dry Creek stream gage, operated by the Wind River Mountain Research Lab, located at the historic location of USGS Gage #06222500 above the headworks of the Dry Creek Canal, near Burris, Wyoming.

Wind River Mountain Research Lab Stream Gage #2

Stage data are recorded every 15 minutes (barring technical difficulties) and converted to volumetric discharge rates using a Bayesian power-law rating curve developed from in-situ streamflow measurements. Daily and 15-minute records are available upon reasonable request.
