Hi Friends of Sausal Creek,

Below is an explanation on yesterday's high flows.  Thank you, Bob, for 
filling us in!  Bob tried to post this message to the listserv, but I 
don't think the email went through because the listserv was cc'd and 
listserv protections don't allow the listserv email address to be 
included as a cc: or a bcc:  I apologize that I didn't notice this sooner.

If I get a report from EBMUD I will post to the listserv.
