To address the low-flow problem in Redwood Creek, SRF began a study in 2015 with these objectives:
- Quantify summer/fall stream discharges at a suite of main channel and tributary sites;
- Evaluate possible causes of unexpected flow variations (e.g., decreasing discharge with increasing drainage area);
- Identify and rank sub-watersheds that may be impacted by water diversions and therefore benefit from forbearance agreements;
- Recommend means to streamline future monitoring.
