Oak Spring - Salisbury Potrero Survey - 07-03-2017 - by Duane Waite
Link: Oak Spring - Salisbury Potrero
Date: 07-03-2017
Surveyor Name:Duane Waite
Camp Description:Assuming that this is the Oak Spring near the Judell trail head, the spring is flowing.
The rate from the pipe is approximately an ounce per second. There's a bit of sulphur smell to the water, and the water has a greenish tint. I resisted the urge to drink a bit of it unfiltered considering the bovine activity nearby..
Lots of wildlife swimming around in the tub....
Water Source:Flowing
Water Source Details:Tub is full. Flow is 1 oz per second. Water tastes a bit sulphury and has a greenish tint
Weather Conditions:Clear skies, cool breeze. Daytime temp near 90, night temp 45
