Does anybody know what causes the regular fluctuation on the South Fork of the new.

Take a look at the chart and every day the flow increases during the day and ebbs through the night?

Anybody know the cause?

me -There's a season?

Toilet flushes.....LOL

How else can you explain the size of those turd eat'in  bass?

 "I think" Boone takes it's water from above the little dam right after the middle fork and goshen run togather to make the south fork of the new. i'm assuming (you know what happens when you assume  :-\) the taking of water for the town causes the fluctuation. *there is a disclaimer on this post that some or all of this may not be true

The addition of turds from the wastewater plant is where the rise comes from in most flows  ;D

 they've actually found fish that have both male and female organs below the waste treatment plant  :o they say it caused by hormones from birth control pills. the treatment process does remove the hormones from the water. they've been finding fish like this for several years in the potomac river. just think the water from howards runs back into the south fork of the new and somebody in virginia drinks it  ???
