Notes

Sunny and medium winds. About 3 MM rainfall in past 24 hours, including a bit this morning. Some birds and bugs around as would be expected. Normally we don't test this stream as it is often dry but with the rainy springs of late and higher water levels, it seems worthwhile doing these tests today, especially given that this creek collects water from lots of farm fields along the way before passing under the road and then on into South Bay and Lake Ontario. Gentle flow of water now.
