* The Garrapata Creek main stem gage is an old Telog 2109 recorder.

To convert the Garrapata gage readings which is recorded as % of a 10 psi maximum, you divide the reading by 10. If the gage reads 1.2, divided by 10, it is 0.12 psi. (If the readout from the teloger is X, then the real pressure in psi is: X/100 * 10psi       so 1.2/100*10= 0.12 psi).

** recorded in psi (Telog WLS-31 recorder)
