The creek was very full. I could not enter the creek due to the ice shelf along the shore, under the water (too slippery). So I could not get depth. The chloride levels were beyond the maximum of the scale. Due to the icy conditions and snow on roads, heavy salting had occurred.

Mostly ice covered except along shorelines where water velocity kept ice from forming.
