This will be short because I have already

This will be short because I have already written this twice only to have it vanish. I am certain of operator error. Either way I am unable to spend my day writing invisible blog material. Here are a couple photos from some field work being done by myself (Chad), Kim and Travis. Placing piezometers in the creek in order to determine the gaining and losing properties of Mud Creek and Spring Creek. They are little more than steel, hollow rods pounded into the ground with perforation in the bottom to allow water to enter. Via electric tape once can measure the level in stream and also get a sense of what is going on outside the streams banks. Locating the piezometers near each other, one inside the stream and one outside allows for understanding of the groundwaters characteristics. Nice warm days to be dipping ones toes into cool streams…ImageImage
