Update: 9/9/2017

The water didn’t improve today as I thought it would.  The sun is lower in the sky and the days are getting shorter and daily high temps have dropped so water conditions should be improving.

This extended period of turbidity isn’t normal or expected from my perspective.  Today I was reminded of some issues regarding the Glenwood irrigation district.  It’s been suggested the diversion from the Big Muddy into the Hell Roaring ditch has been stopped so the Big Muddy is delivering all it’s sediment into the Klickitat.  I’m guessing, based on a number of indicators and suggestions, that this could be a cause for increased turbidity.  No pics tonight, sorry.
