Past and Current Lake Levels

USGS Water ResourcesNOAA Water Levels & Data


 Below is an example of how to convert the Stage level to current water levels of Lake Koshkonong

The Datum Gage and Stage Level are measured in feet above sea level.
Datum Gage + Stage Level = Water Elevation Today 770.00   Datum Gage
+ 5.42    Sample Stage Level
775.42   Water Elevation Today
The Datum Gage is always 770.00. The Stage level varies with water elevations.
Summer Operating Orders
776.33 Maximum
776.20 Target Level 776.10 Minimum
Winter Operating Orders
775.77 Maximum
775.27 Crest of Dam
775.00 Minimum
  776.20 Summer Target
– 775.95 Water Elevation Today
.25 feet Below Target
.25 feet = 3 inches
