Due to the need for dynamic management of pond flows and pond openings, water flows through the pond complexes are not possible to adequatedly show here. For baseline information on flows in the Baumberg/Eden Landing ponds refer to the California Department of Fish and Game Operation Plans for the Baumberg Complex Pond Systems and contact John Krause, CDFG for flow management records. For baseline information on flows in the Alviso ponds refer to the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service 2005 Self-Monitoring Program for Alviso Ponds within South San Francisco Bay Low Salinity Salt Ponds, and contact Eric Mruz, USFWS for flow management records.
