Red Clover Creek
A continuous recording station (CRS) on Red Clover Creek at Notson Bridge was established in October 1999 and has been maintained continuously since installation. Red Clover Creek is tributary to Indian Creek, in the East Branch North Fork Feather River Watershed. The Red Clover Creek watershed has been the focus of meadow and channel restoration activities since 1985. Approximately three miles of channel were restored prior to 1996, with more intensive restoration activity occurring between 2005 and 2013. The cumulative length of channel reconnected to the floodplain above the Notson Bridge station totals approximately 13 miles. Continuing the long-term data collection at this location is important for evaluating the cumulative impact of multiple meadow restoration projects across a variety of water year types, including severe multi-year droughts.
The drainage area above the Notson Bridge station is approximately 109 square miles, with average annual precipitation of 32.6” (USGS StreamStats, 2021).
