It was agreed a new term was required to cover monitoring/measuring stations in non-tidal areas; the proposed definition for a Water Level Station was generated at TWLWG 6:
 
New Term:  
Water Level Station: A place where water level observations are obtained.  It is has continuous observations  available for a sufficient number of years to determine the characteristic features for the locality.

This definition is really short (from one extreme to the other). May be we should add something like: See also TIDE STATION

Btw we should read:
It has continuous observations  available etc. (there is an "is" too many).

Agree with both comments; typo to be removed and cross-reference to TIDE STATION to be added.

Just a minor issue: The term "charcteristic features" in the definition seems to be too generic. Suggest that this be amended to read "characteristic water level features" or "water level characteristics" (personally I would favour "water level characteristics").

Entirely content with these suggestions, amended definition proposed as:

Water Level Station: A place where water level observations are obtained.  It has continuous observations  available for a sufficient number of years to determine the water level characteristics for the locality.  See also TIDE STATION.

Thanks to the Southern hemisphere contribution (not only good at rugby), we have now an excellent definition.
We can move to the next issue. ;)
