Short Description of Activity

Just Tom and Jenny on the River measuring waterflow and sediment levels at Perkinsville, Bear Siding, and Verde Springs.


A month after the heavy rain there was debris high in the trees, water worked its way out of the irrigation ditch and downhill to channel back into the river. Verde Springs had no moving water – in essence a slough but the water has to be perking up somewhere downstream. waterflow cfs 11 at Perkinsville and over 20 at Bear Siding – an unusual delta. See my Facebook page for many pictures.
