-One of the things I am always interested in as a paddler is not only the current water level but also whether the river is rising, falling or staying relatively stable. ​ The idea behind the 2 trend columns ​is to provide this information at a glance so you do not need to click through to the gauge on the Environment Alberta website. ​ It will likely take some time for me to tweak the percentage of change cut offs so I would encourage you to take the information with a grain of salt for the summer of 2012.  ​Here is how it is currently set up:+One of the things I am always interested in as a paddler is not only the current water level but also whether the river is rising, falling or staying relatively stable. ​ The idea behind the arrows ​is to provide this information at a glance so you do not need to click through to the gauge on the Environment Alberta website. Here is how it is currently set up:
  
-The most current water level is compared against 3 different levels from the either ​past 36 or 8 hours and based on the percentage change in the flow the computer code spits out a graphic ​for the end user.  ​Here are the current cutoffs I am using. ​ As you will notice the percent change that I use is different for the 36hr timeframe and the 8hr timeframe. ​ I may tweak these a bit in the future and will update this page if I do.+The most current water level is compared against 3 different levels from the past 24 hours and based on the average ​percentage change in the flow the computer code spits out a result ​for the end user.  ​
