King County provides funding to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to support the operation and maintenance of river and stream gages and related systems. The term "gage" is defined as an instrument for measuring or testing. USGS uses the term "streamgage" to describe their equipment that obtains estimates of the amount of water flowing in streams and rivers. More information about USGS streamgages
