You're almost right.
It went from 5.3m back down to it's normal level (consider that 2.44m is the 'highest recorded' reading for the Seiont).
Not many rivers in this country run at 5.3m deep unless in some kind of biblical event! ;-)

In short, it looks like it was knackered, now it's fixed.

There's a chance though that the calibrations *may* have changed. If you think they have, please post on rainchasers (http://rainchasers.com/river/seiont/pon ... caernarfon) and I'lll update them.

I use that gauge to plan a trip to the Seiont from the Midlands. I think it's been playing up for a while. Anyways. Now that it is fixed. Hopefully anther opportunity to run it will arise shortly. This Sunday would be fantastic :)
