This remote webcam is located upstream of the USGS stream-gaging station on SAN PEDRO CREEK NEAR GOLETA (see map). This station provides continuous monitoring of certain river conditions such as flow and stage. The webcam provides valuable information to the National Weather Service, first-responders, and area residents to evaluate real-time conditions in the creek channel during storms. The visual record of flooding and potential debris flow also provides valuable research data for the USGS.
This webcam is seasonal. Check back soon for updates.

Much of the watershed was severely burned in the Gap fire of July, 2008. Because of this, downstream areas are at high risk for flash flooding or debris flows. This webcam will allow area residents to evaluate real-time conditions in the channel during storms.
Because of the remotness of this location, this is a self-sustaining webcam, powered by a solar-and-battery system, utilizing wireless internet access.
