Time lapse camera for stormwater monitoring

I finally tried out a time lapse camera for stormwater monitoring at Haines Run on the Wissahickon.  We hid the camera in a bird house and pointed it at dry bed next to the Haines Run channel. For some storms, the channel has not shown significant overflow.  Because the stormflow is not as high as we expected, it will take a lower flow level to trigger some ISCO samplers the Academy of Natural Sciences has installed at this site.  However, we eventually captured a storm on film that overflowed the channel.  We can look at storm intensity and antecedent conditions to predict the channel overflow.
