Abstract

The Walnut Creek Monitoring project utilized a paired-watershed as well as upstream/downstream comparisons for analysis and tracking of trends. The Walnut Creek watershed is paired with the Squaw Creek watershed and a common basin divide is shared. Based on their similar basin characteristics, the watersheds are well suited to such a design. In addition, several subbasins are monitored in both watersheds to allow comparisons of differential implementation over time, and for analyzing their incremental contributions to the overall basin response.
