Water Temperature: Above Healthy

Posted on Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Here are the latest water temperature data.  Note that we were above the healthy zone (above 57 deg F) and into the lethal zone (above 59 deg F) for several hours yesterday at Rossmoor Bar and at William Pond.  Temperatures upstream are expected to be cooler.

Note also: the gravel and water gauges at Rossmoor are measuring warmer than the cdec gauge at William Pond.  We assume this is because the Rossmoor gauges are more affected by direct sunlight. Water and Gravel temps 3-26-15

 

Additional Notes:

  • Hazel: AHZ cdec gauge.
  • William Pond: AWP cdec guage.
  • Rossmoor Water: Water Forum temporary gauge – average of three sites; each gauge is installed in white, slotted PVC pipe at gravel surface.
  • Rossmoor Gravel: Water Forum temporary gauge – average of three sites; each gauge is installed in white, slotted PVC pipe at about 12 inches deep in the gravel.
