River Gauges

Click on the Image to View Individual Gauge Information

There are over 100 gauges located on major rivers, lakes, and streams in central Iowa. These gauges report the height of the river in real time and are color coded based on whether the river is at flood stage at that point.

For Google Earth users, there are two kmz files that display both current river gauge information and forecasts for the river at that point.
