The USGS samples this stream as part of the NAWQA program water.usgs.gov/nawqa/ This is an urban stream and we were supposed to collect invertebrate and algae samples. Rain from a line of severe thunderstorms caused a minor flood event which canceled this work. waterdata.usgs.gov/sc/nwis/uv/?site_no=02169570&PARAm...
We wanted to see the stream reach so we visited it the next morning. I was impressed with the amount of trash (mostly discarded disposable drink containers) that washed-up during the event. The floodplain was also impressive with the amount of trash deposited during larger flood events. mapper.acme.com/?ll=33.98789,-80.97636&z=14&t=T&a... I took the images of the stream below Rosewood Drive. Looks like this group has no shortage of problems to overcome: www.gillscreekwatershed.com/
