SRF Streamflow Monitoring Season

SRF monitors streamflow in three different tributaries to the South Fork of the Eel River in the low flow season. The monitoring is to help plan streamflow enhancement projects, check out the Redwood Creek Flow Enhancement Implementation Plan. The 2023 monitoring season kicked off in May and will continue until SRF is able to capture the first flush in the fall. This will be SRF’s eleventh year monitoring streamflow in Redwood Creek, eighth year in Sproul Creek, and first year in Cahto Creek. Even though Northern California received a lot of precipitation this winter, streamflow is not unusually high. SRF posts the measurements for Sproul and Redwood on the SRF website.
