Description:
Abstract:
Depths of muck on the Owens River channel were measured at various points.
Purpose:
The data were taken in portions of the channel which will be re-watered according to the terms of the Inyo Los Angeles Long Term Water Agreement. The data will assist in predicting the amount of sediments which may potetially be transported when water is returned to the Owens River.
