Flood events in Lower Thunder River

In early January 2018 Carroll Cave Conservancy bought and installed another stream level data logger.  The new logger is located about 150 feet downstream from Thunder Falls.

The hypothesis supporting the new logger is that Lower Thunder River floods before Upper Thunder River.  The flood progression is for Upper Thunder River to run at normal or slightly elevated levels until Lower Thunder River is completely flooded.  Only then does the water level in Upper Thunder River begin to rise. read more
