Area Blue Waterhole Creek
Topic Temperature: FWA, Blue Waterhole Creek Sites, 2001
Caption:  The above chart plots floating weekly average temperature at Blue Waterhole Creek sites for the year 2001. Based on a review of steelhead growth studies, Sullivan et al. (2000) found that compared to optimum temperatures, an MWAT of 17.0c reduced steelhead growth by 10%, and an MWAT of 19.0c reduced growth by 20%. The stream is warm coming off grasslands at Site #1 and is cooled by forested tributaries at Site #2. This trend is not continued downstream, however, and Sites #3-#4 are progressively warmer.
