The level at the crown of the pipe is the Invert level plus the internal diameter of the pipe plus the pipe wall thickness. It may be necessary to use this in calculations when level measurements are taken from the crown of a pipe.

I only have a confidence level of 3, because in some references the crown level is internal and in others, it's external.
