    The South Fork Merced drains the south west portion of Yosemite National Park. Its headwaters drain peaks o feet in elevation. The river runs roughly west to Wawona (4, feet elevation) where it is crossed by highway From Wawona the river runs roughly north west for 23 miles to the Main Merced ( feet elevation). The Merced National Wild & Scenic River flows from glaciers at the crest of the Sierra, through Yosemite National Park and Yosemite Valley, and into the Sierra foothills. Leaving the park in a series of cascades and rapids the river flows free and essentially undiverted for 22 miles of spring-wildflower-strewn canyon before it is swallowed by.

The lower Merced River and Mustang Creek watersheds and four other watersheds have been selected by the USGS National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program for a special study of agricultural chemicals and water quality.

We appreciate your help We are working with local growers and land owners to gain access to study sites. The lower Merced River and Mustang Creek watersheds and four other watersheds have been selected by the USGS National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program for a special study of agricultural chemicals and water quality.

The current focus of the Upper Merced River Watershed Council is the development, maintenance and restoration of trails along the Merced Wild and Scenic River and in the watershed. Our efforts also include monitoring water quality and any threats to the river’s Wild and Scenic Status and therefore public access to the river.

The Nation's rivers and streams are a priceless resource, but pollution from urban and agricultural areas pose a threat to our water quality. To understand the value of water quality, and to more effectively manage and protect the Nation's water resources, it's critical that we know the current status of water-quality conditions, and how and why those conditions have been changing over time.

Real-Time River Conditions for the Merced River. The Merced River is free-flowing from its headwaters east of Yosemite National Park down to Bagby Reservoir. With no upstream reservoir releases, the Merced relies on runoff from snowmelt.

Whitewater rafting can be enjoyed from April to July depending on the winter snowpack. Lower Merced River Although the stretch of Merced River from El Portal to the South Fork is not within the boundaries of Yosemite National Park, it is often a fishing destination for anglers staying in the park.

Glaciation and river erosion, coupled with the influence of bedrock fractures, carved pathways that the Merced River continues to follow and create the river's variable gradients and dramatic changes in water speed and volume.

The lower Merced River Basin, which encompasses the Mustang Creek Subbasin, gently slopes from the northeast to the southwest toward the San Joaquin River. The arid to semiarid climate is characterized by hot summers (highs of mid 90 degrees Fahrenheit) and mild winters (lows of mid 30 degrees Fahrenheit).Authors: Jo Ann M.

Inthe U.S. Geological Survey began to study the effects of natural and anthropogenic influences on the quality of ground water, surface water, biology, and ecology as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program.

As part of this program, the San Joaquin-Tulare Basins study unit is assessing parts of the lower Merced River Basin, California. The Merced River (/ m ɜːr ˈ s ɛ d /), in the central part of the U.S.

state of California, is a mile ( km)-long tributary of the San Joaquin River flowing from the Sierra Nevada into the San Joaquin is most well known for its swift and steep course through the southern part of Yosemite National Park, where it is the primary watercourse flowing through Yosemite : San Joaquin River.

The project was anticipated by the Merced Wild and Scenic River Final Comprehensive Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (Record of Decision issued in February ), which called for further hydrologic impact studies to determine the effects of Sugar Pine Bridge “on the river’s alluvial nature.” However, the effects of any single structure on a river can only be understood.

The Merced River tumbles over the cascading Nevada and Vernal Falls of Yosemite National Park. The river meanders along the valley floor through Yosemite and builds into a river of pure whitewater.

With its' steep gradient, sweeping bends, and few obstacles to negotiate the Merced provides long straight forward rapids with big rolling waves.

The following information on projected water supply, demand and availability, prepared by the Division of Water Rights for the Merced River Watershed, is being provided to assist water right holders in planning for water availability in the coming months.

This information is the Division's best projection, based on current hydrologic data. F lowing west from the Sierra Nevada crest in Yosemite National Park’s, the Merced River is perhaps best known for its unique and beautiful setting in Yosemite Valley. InCongress added the Merced and the South Fork Merced in Yosemite Park and the Sierra National Forest to the federal system.
