The King of Meteor Showers’: Brightly Colored Geminids to Streak Across Night Sky This Weekend

The most impressive meteor shower of the year is set to peak at the end of the weekend, but clouds may block the view for many along the Eastern and Western coasts of the United States.

Colorado River Channel Maintenance

The Bureau of Reclamation’s Yuma Area Office is initiating river maintenance and wash fan channel clearing at the Quien Sabe Wash Fan along the Colorado River beginning on Monday, November 30, 2015. The Quien Sabe Wash Fan is located within the Colorado River Indian Tribe’s reservation perimeter, seven miles north of the Aha Quin Resort at River Mile 151.1 on the California side of the river. Reclamation will be operating long-reach excavators, haul trucks, and bulldozers along the banklines and access roads leading into the area. Due to public safety concerns, all boats launches and river recreation will not be permitted in the area until construction activities are substantially complete. Reclamation timed the maintenance work to take advantage of the current low river channel flow season which occurs from November 2015 through March 2016.

In conducting the work, Reclamation crews will remove approximately 16,000 cubic yards of mostly fine sandy and some gravely material from the channel area with excavation extending four feet below the navigational level of the river. The project surface area will cover about 2.3 acres. Excavated material will not be stockpiled in the wash fan area or discharged into the Colorado River. The maintenance...
