This page displays discharge data for USGS streamgages located on major surface water inflows to GSL. Lake surface elevations for gages on the north (Saline) and south (Saltair and south side of the railroad causeway) arms of the lake are shown at the bottom of this page. Because most surface water inflows enter the south arm of the lake, its surface elevation is usually higher than the north arm. Currently, water can move through the causeway via an engineered breach and to a lesser extent through the rock-fill causeway material. Gage locations are shown on the map.
Data are from the USGS National Water Information System.
Current Daily: Mean daily value. Values are typically from the day before.

Wind events can cause flow reversals where water flows from GSL into Farmington Bay. Flows from GSL to Farmington Bay are indicated by negative discharge values.
