I forget the name of the instrument, but the long steel rod measures the velocity of the water. One technician works his way acoss the stream in 6 inches increments. He then set the rod for that particular depth and it gives a velocity reading for that section. The other technician writes down data and uses the distance, depth, velocity and than determines cell volume or CFS
