Gauge Description:

Southern CA Edison was posting online Flow Information for this reach as well as for some others in the basin, during some of 2006 and 2007.   This was part of the Big Creek settlement agreement.   They ceased providing that information in January of 2008, but then got it working again in December of 2008.    If you find the gauge not working, you may be able to get flow information by contacting the SCE relicensing person, Wayne Allen at (559) 893-3642.  

Releases of 200 cfs to 500 cfs usually occur July, August and sometimes September.  Historical data for this reach is available at the webpage for USGS #11231500.
