    Default USGS Site

    Anybody know what happened to the Little Pigeon USGS metering station in Sevierville? My link to that site doesn't work anymore and when I look at a map of USGS metering sites, it doesn't show up.

    There were about 17 gages taken out of service. I've tried to find out where I saw that, but I cannot find it. Seems like it was somehwere on NOAA. I don't recall if the one you reference was included. I'll keep looking.

    Found this link. You have to scroll way down to find the Little Pigeon at Sevierville. Hope you can make sense of it.

    Charlie, thanks for bringing this up. I was miffed when they dropped it from the website, but at SC reported the information is still being collected.

    I did some digging and found another really good site with the LP information at Sevierville:
    http://www.lawrencevilleweather.com/...bs&gauge=SEVT1

    Her is the same graph on the NOAA site:
    http://ahps.srh.noaa.gov/ahps2/hydro...0,7,8,2,9,15,6

    It even has a forecast...

    Good digging. A graph is much more easily understood. Gives the same data as the NOAA site I referenced, but you do not have to hunt through lots of rivers to get to the East Tennessee and extreme sw Virginia section where the Little Pigeon is listed.

    Pete,

    Really nice graph on the second link - love the forecast.

    BTW, I tried to recover a bunch of the yellow cat hair from the vacuum cleaner last week and it was so gobbed up with other stuff it would have been unusable. And it didn't look that yellow off the cat.

    Thanks to both you guys for researching this topic.

    Stumbled into the site which referenced the gages being removed. They were TVA rainfall gages. Knew I saw it somewhere.
