Highest point that Wagg can be seen above ground. Water running steadily.
Single family home neighbourhood, large lots.
Sampling site is a ravine / small easement between two houses. Go down the path. Stream bed has a steep grade. The creek flows out of a storm pipe. Strong iron oxide deposit (slimy orange coating on cobble and staining of water first seen June 2021, fading in June 2022). Take measurement to the north while standing on the make shift board walk.

first rainfall today after several wks drought
channel is well wetted but water level is lower
First time I've seen water is clear! Iron oxide deposit still visible on rocks, but fading.
Lots of iron oxide, steady trickle from culvert, small trickle from pipe draining the home above embankment
Reddish brown sediment on rocks and in creek bed.
Low water level.
Brown/orange discolouration persists. Source unknown, could be naturally occurring? Sulphur/sewage smell not present today.
Residential area, conductivity is higher than expected. wetted width of flow 1 foot to 1 metre. Suspect a cross connection with sewage?
