Note Regarding Piute Reservoir
The staff gauge readings refer to the staff gauge installed on the face of the Piute Reservoir Dam near the outlet tunnel as part of the Piute Dam Rehabilitation Project completed in 2005 (referred to in this narrative as the “new staff gauge”).
The 76.0 foot contour for Piute Reservoir equates to a staff gauge elevation reading of 76.8 feet on the new staff gauge. The 76.0 foot contour, which corresponds to the 76.8 feet mark on the new staff gauge, equates to a 1929 Vertical Datum Mean Sea Level Elevation (MSL) of 5976.8 feet.
