Spillway and American River water Ph values are also collected. Observations and counts of the visible aquatic and terrestrial wildlife within the survey perimeter (285 sq. meters), are also made. See you there.

Cordova Creek spillway (outfall), 114 pieces collected, AR Ph 8.8, CC spillway Ph 9.1. Animal observations/count available by request. Time 98 minutes. Item of note, one adult male has set up an illegal and apparently permanent campground in the spillway, unwise for a number of reasons, not an issue with our survey, however. Also, the construction crew has now activated the water flow through the new creek bank areas, looks nice, so far. Keep up the good work. There were pics....they are in the following posts.
