The River Returns!

It's been so dry in the upper Arroyo Seco Watershed for so long! The recent storms did a lot to change that! The stream gauge in the Arroyo jumped from 1 cubic foot (cfs) or 7.5 gallons per second to one thousand cfs briefly on January 17 and a week later climbed up to 300 cfs before resting for a bit at 100 cfs. That should really open up the stream up there between Oak Wilde and Switzer's Camp for the fish and aquatic species.
