Hydrologic technicians (or hydrotechs) from the USGS California Water Science Center were recently featured on Sacramento News Channel ABC10.

The story was part of ABC10’s “Bartell’s Backroads” series, where reporter John Bartell visits unique sites throughout the state.

The focus was the Bend Bridge monitoring station, near the city of Red Bluff. The Bend Bridge station is home to one of the longest streamgage cableways on the West Coast.
