InSight Consultants provides technical services related to Watershed management.

The purpose of this site is to provide information relevant to current management
issues with emphasis on stream temperature management. 

This site contains my data files, reports, and charts from fieldwork conducted between 1998 and 2012.  This work should be considered preliminary and has not been peer reviewed.  The intent is to provide some general insights into the stream heating processes in the hopes of improving the quality of the stream management decisions within the Umpqua Basin.

Special acknowledgement goes to Paul Herbling and Bobbie Lindberg at DEQ for project support and coordinating EPA 319 funding. 

Also, special thanks to Sandy Lyon who provided inspiration, support and coordinated the OWEB funding. 

Thank you for visiting!
