Short Description of Activity
Water Sentinels – back after 18 months (except for 3 unofficial Broads trips). Tom and Jenny were accompanied by Cathey and Tom Rusing. Cathey is on the Prescott City Council – Tom is a retired surgeon and been a leader in Save the Dells from the beginning several years ago. Great photos can be found on my Facebook page.
We could not measure waterflow at Perkinsville because the river was at flood stage and too swift. At Bear Siding the river was once again too swift. We were educating Cathey and Tom the whole way on status of the endangered Upper Verde. Go to KYCA.info to hear Cathey speaking this morning on the Maryann Suttles Show – morning show. She talked about our day on the river. At Verde Springs the water was rushing down through Stillman Lake from the Big Chino – we have had a lot of Monsoon Rain. We plowed through slick mud and debris and found a spot to measure – 27 data points.
