Redwood Creek Low-Flow Monitoring

Snorkel survey, September 2015

The flow is dropping by about half everty two weeks. Even though the flow in Redwood Creek is higher this time of year than it has been for the last couple of years and the downpour that we recieved was really nice, the flow in Redwood Creek is currently just above crisis. If you live in the Redwood Creek Watershed and are able to forbear from diverting water from the stream, please do so. The mouths of tributaries are started to dry up, making it harder for fish to migrate between the mainstem and the smaller creeks. 

Hover your mouse over the graph lines to see daily values. Click on the Monitoring Site Labels (Dinner Creek, Miller Creek, etc.) to remove/add information.

Redwood Creek 1.5,1.8, 2.5, 3, & 4 and Upper Redwood Creek are mainstem sites (4 is farthest downstream).

Dinner, Miller, and China Creeks are Redwood Creek tributaries.

The average of a certain year is the mean flow of all the monitoring sites from around that time.

Data is plotted on a logarithmic scale; 0.01 represents "0" or "No flow." Measurements are rounded to the nearest tenths.
