Measuring tapes are used for setting gages,
tape downs to determine reference stage level, stream width,
marking off bridge railings for measurement stations, etc.
Stream gaging measurements are made in 0.1 and .01 feet (2.0 mm)
distance accuracies. All tapes offered here are marked to .01
feet and 2.0 mm gradations and are acceptable for USGS
measurements. For accurate surveying and gage setting tape
tension spring scales should be used and recorded. Sokkia and
Lufkin Tapes are top quality measuring tapes to be used for all
these measurements and more.
