Learning the Equipment – BLOGIS

In the morning, the team ventured upstream of the worksite to practice manually measuring flow velocity profiles with velocity meters and measuring the profile of the bed surface using measuring tapes and meter sticks.  Doing so was necessary for us to get used to the process of collecting data in the field before we start measuring the data within our study area. In the afternoon, we drove further upstream on Monument Creek where a large amount of its extent had been engineered.  Scatters of young willows and riprap had been placed along the banks in an effort to slow down the water and protect the banks from severe erosion, cement structures were built to break up flow and aerate the water, and rain gardens were constructed to clean stormwater drainage before flowing into the Creek.
