Pecos River Basin - River Gage Information

In a joint effort between the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer and the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission (OSE/ISC) annual support is provided to the U.S. Geological Survey for multiple gaging stations within the State.  Additionally, operation and maintenance of critical USGS gages used for Pecos Compact accounting are partially paid for by the Pecos River Commission.  The primary data collected at stream gaging stations is the quantity of water flowing at a particular location along a river versus time.  The unit of measure for discharge is typically cubic feet per second.  Some of the gaging stations may also be equipped with water quality meters, such as those that measure the electrical conductivity of the water.  These water quality meters provide an indirect measure of the salinity of the water; see for example the gage at Pecos River near Malaga (USGS station number 08406500).
