LEO Center 14_-3_0 load cells measurement channel was previously switched on 7/3/2019.

We experienced an error on 3/30/2020 around 2pm where the load cell was reading an extremely high mass than usual.

This was tracked down to water ingressing onto the load cell and causing it to read incorrectly.

We switched the channel again on 6/9/2020.

Currently (August 2020), we are applying a bead of caulking around the LEO hillslope frame above the load cells to prevent water reaching it.
