Definitions for "Low water"
When the water reaches its minimum height in the tidal cycle. Synonym: Low Tide.
The minimum height reached by a falling tide. The low water is due to the periodic tidal forces and the effects of meteorological, hydrologic, and/or oceanographic conditions. For tidal datum computational purposes, the minimum height is not considered a low water unless it contains a tidal low water.
(LW): The minimum height reached by each falling TIDE. Nontechnically, also called LOW TIDE.
Flows below an expected average. More rocks and obstacles may show, rapids become more technical
