Study of the Water, Sediment and Mercury Inflows to Cache Creek Settling Basin based on Cache Creek Watershed HydrologyandFuture Climate Conditions

Cache Creek Settling Basin (CCSB), located two miles east of Woodland, California, was constructed to preserve the floodway capacity of Yolo Bypass by entrapping sediment. Cache Creek is the main source of mercury entering San Francisco Bay-Delta. Entrapping sediment also entraps mercury, so the settling basin also helps preserve aquatic life of San Francisco Bay-Delta
