Long Description:
This river gauge is attached to a small church in Asselt (near Roermond) close te the river Rhine.
Most time of the year the gauge can easyly be reached by foot, however when the river Rhine gets flooded high boots or a boat is needed.
This gauge indicates extreme high water levels of the river Rhine during the centuries.
Data of extreme high water levels can be read near the level indicater (eg 26-7-1829, 18,9 meters above sea level).
The ordinary water level of the river Rhine at this point is around 16 meters above sea level.
RIVER GAUGE INFORMATION:
The level indication is between 18 an 21 meters above sea level. Years of extreme high water levels can be read near the level indicater.
