Water Level Gauges

Freshwater staff gauge readings are conducted daily at strategically selected freshwater sites in Pasco County. These measurements provide guidance on the opening or closing of operable gates, and the support of emergency flood control operations to include pumping accumulated surface water runoff from lakes, canals and other water bodies.

Additional freshwater gauge data:

Gauges are also read at other locations in the county to include lakes, canals, and similar environments with standing water. Readings vary as needed based on weather conditions, and the amount of rainfall received in the county. 

If the county is under emergency operations, or preparing for preemptive pumping in anticipation of heavy rains, readings may be conducted daily.
