Prior message that prompted the new implementation:
All of the USGS gauges on the flowpage are not currently updating. The USGS is updating the gauges on their site but the flowpage is currently not getting the latest values. The USGS changed their url to a secure HTTPS request on December 14th and this has negatively affected the code that compiles the flowpage. I am working out the issues and hope to get it fixed soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
