Curtis Creek Temperature (Upper - Lower)

This resource contains temperature data from Curtis Creek (includes data from two sites: Upper, Lower). These sites have been monitored for 4 years (2015-06-18 to 2019-10-01). The Salmo Watershed Streamkeepers Society has been monitoring water temperature in the Salmo River Watershed to better understand the health of the river system as a whole and to monitor impacts of climate change on stream health and possible impacts to fish populations.
