Topic Temperature: Floating Weekly Average at Dillon Creek 1997-2002
 
Caption:  This Chart shows the floating weekly average water temperatures at lower Dillon Creek (site 10) for the years 1997-2002. Maximum floating weekly average water temperature (MWAT) exceeded 17.0C in all years measured, and exceeded 19.0C in 5 of 6 years, indicating that water temperatures are higher than optimal for juvenile steelhead. 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%. Temperature data comes from automated water temperature data probes placed in the Klamath River and its tributaries by the Klamath National Forest and the Karuk Tribe.
