    Description

    Streams often present a challenge for collecting flow and sediment measurements on a year-round basis. Streams that can normally be waded become hazardous during seasonal flows, either endangering hydrographers or precluding data collection completely. A hand-operated cableway permits the accurate and safe collection of discharge and sediment data from the stream bank. This system provides a low-cost, safe alternative to cable cars or operation from bridges during high runoff. This publication describes the construction and use of a cableway system. Included are figures describing parts and dimensions, installation methods, and field operations.
