Preliminary temperature modeling data assessment report available

An initial report assessing the quality and availability of data needed for water temperature modeling has been completed by SFPUC consultant Merritt Smith Consulting. The findings of the report will be used to build a water temperature model for the Upper Tuolumne River to evaluate the historical stream temperature regime and the effects of future environmental water release recommendations from Hetch Hetchy Project facilities.
