New USGS Ward's Ferry stream gage

The USGS has installed a new stream gage near Ward's Ferry Bridge, at the upstream end of Don Pedro Reservoir, to monitor Rim Fire-related water quality parameters.  The gage currently records stage, water temperature, conductance, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, and pH.  The gage is funded by Modesto and Turlock irrigation districts, and the SFPUC.
