Area Blue Waterhole Creek
Topic Temperature: FWA at Blue Waterhole Creek Site 4, 1994-98, 2000-01
Caption:  This chart shows the floating weekly average temperature of Blue Waterhole Creek at FROG's Site #4 just above its convergence with the Garcia River. Maximum floating weekly average temperature exceeded 19.0C in all years measured. 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%. Data contributed by the Friends of the Garcia River.
