Land To House Adventure 13 – Creek Flow Rate

In this Episode I test the Water Flow Rate of the Creek. There are a few ways to do this but this one worked well for my small creek.

Just use a 5 gallon bucket and clock with seconds.

The math that is used is simple:

(5 gallons / seconds to fill bucket) * 60 = gallons per min flow rate

Back in the early part of the year I took the bucket out to the same place and I was able to test with the same results. So it would seem as though I have the same amount of water flowing all year. At least this year anyway.
