Notice: CO-OPS recently determined that water level data from Vancouver (9440083) contained an error due to the conversion of pressure to water level in our database. This error resulted in water level measurements several centimeters higher than actual, and impacted data products from March 27, 2002 to August 4, 2021. Water level products from August 4, 2021 to present, including real-time data, are correct. We are currently working on correcting the historical water level data and downstream products and aim to have them updated by 2024. We will provide a notification once the historical data products have been updated. Any data products downloaded from this time will need to be re-downloaded. If you have any questions, please send an email to and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Datums for 9440083, Vancouver WA

Columbia River Datum Columbia River Datum (CRD) is the adopted fixed low water reference plane for this area. CRD is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers non-tidal datum defined at distinct river miles relative to NAVD88, and is used as chart datum above river mile 23 on the Columbia River. Datums are computed using observations from the low river stages of the year, generally August through October due to the masking of the tidal signal from strong seasonal river runoff during other portions of the year. Depending on river flow, water levels can be significantly higher than Columbia River Datum. As of 2014, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provided updated offsets for CRD that have been applied to this station. Station Datum (STND) is no longer set equal to CRD.
NOTICE: All data values are relative to the MLLW.
