Definition (

Recorded water level at a streamflow gauge expressed in a distance above the defined datum for that gauge. It is common for the datum to be defined as the bed level of the stream channel at the gauge location and in that case the stage height is the depth of water in the channel. There are other situations where a different datum is used, such as Australian Height Datum or other local survey datums. (eWater)
