With Twisp River Stream Restoration Finished, Foundation Tracks Wetland Impacts

For several decades, a wetland along the Twisp River in north-central Washington has been used as a re-regulating irrigation reservoir by a landowner looking to support their crops. “Water was diverted from a small stream into the wetland, then pumped out of the wetland to irrigate about 35 acres of hay and pasture,” said Brian Fisher, ecologist and project manager at the Methow Salmon Recovery Foundation . “The irrigation system was diverting the majority of the stream during low flows, and was creating barriers that blocked fish migration for part of the year.” Fisher and others at the foundation worked with the landowner to change things up and use water from a well instead of continuing to divert surface water.

Moving levees can help recharge groundwater aquifers in California

Groundwater typically makes up more than 30 percent of California’s annual water usage, according to the state’s Department of Water Resources. But during times like the current prolonged drought, groundwater becomes more important, meeting 46 percent of the state’s annual needs. With the rising dependence on groundwater in dry times, scientists have begun looking for ways to fill up depleted aquifers and keep flush those still filled with water. The goals have led to new approaches, like one coming out of a research project led by scientists at the Universities of California, Davis and Merced, that looked at structures somewhat overlooked in times of low water levels: flood levees. The study took place along the Cosumnes River, the last major undammed river in California.

Figuring Out How Microplastics Move From Mussels To Fish

Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.
