Default Downstream elevation

Gerry,
Let me wish you a happy birthday first, and I'll give you my thoughts on the "downstream elevation" of each dam. When you're up close to one of the dams, look closely at the small section on one side that is a concrete corridor. There is usually a measuring devise along the side just as the concrete corridor ends. The water level for the downstream side is level in this area and that is where it is measured. Best wishes again for your birthday.
Hugh
