I am running a spillway simulation and it is important to accurately quantify the water level in the upstream reservoir. I am seeing a roughly 15 cm discrepancy between the water level from my pressure probes and the contour of alpha1 = 0.5. I have tried refining the mesh but this issue has continued.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to reduce the difference/ which value is likely to provide the most realistic estimation of the real water level?

Thanks for your time.
