NOTES about this crossing:
The way display creek water levels has changed for some crossings; this can be confusing if you aren't aware. The road level is 0.00m. Positive numbers e.g. 0.37m mean the water is above the road. Negative numbers e.g. -0.86m are below the road. So -0.99m is actually lower than -0.86m

There is a problem with calibration of the gauge because it is below the bridge. Water backs up behind the bridge and reaches the road, but below the bridge it is still relatively low and that's what the gauge reads. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about this except to allow a "fudge factor" which I have now done.

Has FloodWatch helped you out? A lot of time has been spent getting it right and I pay for every SMS sent (for this crossing, 115 messages each time!)
