Redwood Creek Low-Flow Monitoring

The flow in Redwood Creek is at crisis level. Eight out of ten monitoring sites on Redwood Creek have no flow. Two of the pools where we measure water level and dissolved oxygen are completly dry. Many pools with water are isolated without running water between them. There is low dissolved oxygen which is required for fish to respire. Please do what you can to conserve water and avoid diverting water from the stream.


Hover your mouse over the graph lines to see daily values. Click on the Monitoring Site Labels (Dinner Creek, Miller Creek, etc.) to remove/add information.

Redwood Creek 1.5,1.8, 2.5, 3, & 4 and Upper Redwood Creek are mainstem sites (4 is farthest downstream).

Dinner, Miller, and China Creeks are Redwood Creek tributaries.

The average of a certain year is the mean flow of all the monitoring sites from around that time.

Data is plotted on a logarithmic scale; 0.01 represents "0" or "No flow." Measurements are rounded to the nearest tenths.
