Measuring and Monitoring the Water.Did you Know?

Measuring, Monitoring and Satellites too!
Cachuma Project Biology staff out in the field where they regularly monitor the amount of water available to ensure that there is adequate water for endangered steelhead. The data are collected and organized into a spatially referenced and fully integrated database which displays complex environmental data to provide better, more efficient river management.

Steelhead’s Migratory Life
Steelhead are born in streams, they migrate to the ocean when they are a year or two old. Steelhead live in the ocean for up to four years, then return as adults to streams to reproduce.
