Detailed Description

A shovel rests against a massive deposit of coarse sediment on the delta to Conconully Reservoir in Okanogan County, Washington. The sediment was deposited following the 2021 Muckamuck fire and a debris flow in July 2022. USGS scientists are studying the sediment and water quality in rivers and reservoirs impacted by the large fire.
