35 cfs

Photo by Marty Horowitz 8/3/2016

Everyone loves photos of water, especially water flowing over the dam. Marty took this one at the flow rate of 35 cfs (cubic feet per second). What does that mean?? Picture a box 1 foot on each side. Now fill that box with water. Now picture 35 of those boxes going over the dam each second. That's what you have with 35 cfs. Want more data about the creek flow? Check out the data available here from the USGS's National Water Information System on the web for the Arizona Water Science Center.
