Go with the Flow

Jess and I continue our dry weather screening despite the cold, cold water.  The water level was up to our waists (well, my waist, Jessica's shoulders I suppose).  Despite the sometimes treacherous journey down the creek today we celebrated in finding the kind of discharge we had been looking for -

That's a lot of water!
I get excited anytime we have the chance to do some chemical testing.  The good news about today's testing results was that the water being pumped into the creek from an unknown source was actually cleaner than the water already present in the creek.  That's not bad news!

Jess uses our GPS unit to map outlets going into the creek.

The two raindrops represent the legs of Turkey Creek that have been assessed and mapped.  Not much more to go!
