Impaired Water Notes
The dam in Ripon causes very heavy slime growth below the dam during warm periods of the year as well as eliminates fish migration resulting in several related problems like clam distribution and migration of trout. It also causes excessive warming. Silver Cr. has been classified Class II trout water from the Origin down to the impoundment.
