Creek starts out as a swampy area paralleling Roblar Road just east
of the insertion of Canfield Rd. It turns into a fairly brisk winter

its way out to the Americano Estuary, an area with Federal protection.
The Creek mostly dries up in the summer and fall.
its origin the creek passes by a closed landfill site on Roblar
Road. It also passes by a proposed Quarry site. Our citizen monitors
are particularly concerned about how the proposed quarry blasting
could affect the dumpsite and allow leakage of toxins into the headwaters
of the Americano Creek and down into the Estuary. The project's
orientation and initial sampling dates are 2/2/2006 at AMR090.
