    Test flows will start from Friant. May effect Mendota Slough in the future.

    yeah they say there gonna do alot of good for some salmon, i dont know about that, hell, if anything the slough might get better, i could be wrong, but i think with the way it looks the slough will get more water, which will clean and feed the slough. what do you guys think?:tounge_out:

    Im not sure how the water will effec the slough..... water in and water out..... not sure if the slough could contain more water... I think the depth is controlled at the north end as far as water comming out....From what I understand they do move the water around to the various ponds...as far as a current or flow... maybe it does happen from one end to the other.....
