  • Site

    Location

    Site is located near Mammoth Pool in Kaiser Creek, California, and is under the auspices of Southern California Edison. This site is operated cooperatively with UC Santa Cruz.

    Network

    BK (Berkeley Digital Seismic Network)

    Geology

    Granite

    Vault/Borehole Conditions

    The instruments are sited on a pier in one of the Southern California Edison tunnels for Mammoth Pool. In winters of especially high rain or snowfall, SCE will open the valve in the back of the tunnel to release water from Mammoth Pool. The noise from the flowing water is extremeley high. After a week or two, the valve will be shut and the noise reduced. The valve was opened in 1996 (Feb), 1997 (Jan), 2000 (May).
