Dry Creek peaked at 7:00 a.m. this morning @ 2,526 cfs at the gauging station immediately above the lower brush catchers, minus a couple of teeth, despite the cleaning of debris by the Kaweah Delta Water Conservation District yesterday between storms.
Does the water end up in a reservoir?
Ours ends up in Folsom Lake and then out to the Sacramento, San Joaquin river’s delta and on to the San Francisco Bay and then the Pacific. There are probably a couple other reservoirs that I don’t know about.
Dry Creek finds its way down the Kaweah River channel below Terminus Dam towards Tulare Lake, once the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, also fed by the Kings, Tule and Kern Rivers in the wet years and utilized by agriculture.
Thanks for the video John. Had me more than a little nervous down here this morning when I seen it jumped 1,100 cfs in one hour haha! Stay safe up there –
Don’t you just wish there were holes drilled along the creeks to get more down into the water table. Fill ‘er up and check under the hood.

The crik’s not so dry now. 🙂
I’ve been thinking about you guys and wondering how things are going. The video is a glimpse. Wow! I hope the worst is passed.
I don’t mind the floods so much, but I hate the fires in the middle of summer. In parts near my brother in Queensland they’re expecting 117degrees F. but luckily not much wind.
