St. Martin Parish now has an electronic gauge in Bayou Milhomme near Stephensville. 

The gauge was installed by USGS (United States Geodetic Survey) and has the ability to measure real-time water levels, which are available to the public, according to the St. Martin Parish Government Facebook page.  It will help with planning in the future for flood events, rain events, No Wake Zone enforcement, and more.

The St. Martin Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness will be able to monitor trends in the water levels from a desk in order to make recommendations to Parish President Cedars on courses of action.
